10. The Best-Laid PlansDesign takeaway: Use two countertop materials to break up the space.With four children ranging in age from younger than 2 to 10 years old, Kevin and Jenny Jarvis knew when they purchased their ranch-style home in Danville, California, that they would have to expand the tight U-shaped kitchen to make it more workable for their active family. “I spend at least 40 percent of the day in the kitchen, so I wanted a space that felt light and open,” Jenny says.Shelley Lober of Kitchens of Diablo gained space by knocking down a wall that separated the original kitchen from a dining room, increasing the size of the kitchen from 135 square feet to 326 square feet. The new space allowed for a large island with plenty of seating and a walk-in pantry.

The new space allowed for a large island with plenty of seating and a walk-in pantry. The backsplash tile behind the range inspired the gray and white color scheme. White painted maple wood cabinets feature Shaker-style doors, satin nickel knobs and pulls, and crown molding.Paint by Kelly-Moore Paints: Greyswood KM3958-3 (walls), Rice Straw KM3953-1 (ceiling), Swiss Coffee KM1050-023 (trim); cabinets: Dura Supreme Cabinetry; cabinetry hardware: Richelieu
