    How pleased were you with the look of the grain showing through when you painted the oak cabinets? It doesn't show as I look at the photo of your kitchen. I have light oak cabinets and am considering painting them, but am wondering

    if the grain showing through look would make it look dated.

    Consider upgrading to a Metro stainless steel table for truly industrial-grade quality (Metro, after all, invented wire shelving). Find it here:

    Is there enough space to put stools up against these tables to allow for proper seating/eating? I see a little space where the stool can slide under the table but not much.

    Lots of people don't have a choice and do a mw/hood combo. Check out my upcoming ideabook on microwaves. But as Futuro Futuro points out, ventilation is better when using a real hood.

    I appreciate all of this info and will look forward to your ideabook. Timing is perfect.

        1. Professional worktable. This kitchen is the first one I remember seeing that had a commercial kitchen worktable worked into an eclectic cottage design. The table serves as worktop, peninsula and eat-in surface, and plays nicely off the serious range and vent hood.

        Rebecca Gallop added this to Guest Picks: Kitchen Storage for All StylesAug 29, 2013

        This kitchen is bright and cheery, filled to the brim and full of personality. Yet it doesn't feel cluttered or overwhelming. I love the metal wall shelving and textured rug!

        9. French country, modern and industrial style. Country houses are often places where homeowners feel it's safer to ignore the rules and do what they like. There's an attitude of "why not?" And when you let your creativity flow without worrying about its being perfect, you often end up with a much more interesting space. Original oak cabinets were painted white and mixed with an industrial stainless steel island and stools, modern appliances and Mediterranean-style terra cotta tyle with plenty of patina.

        You can also create a U-shaped kitchen by adding a freestanding island to an L-shaped kitchen. In this case, the one end cabinet was turned to face away from the kitchen, and a beadboard end panel was added to allow for a place to intersect the open island. Because the island is open, you have knee space for stools and seating without needing an overhang.

        5. Kitchens. Natural fiber rugs are great for kitchens. They naturally repel dirt and you can take them outside and shake them out. Strangely, I find that having a natural fiber rug underfoot doesn't make me think to take off my shoes and I don't worry about it. I love using them for entrance mats as well as in mudrooms and entryways.

        Pots and pans take up quite a bit of storage in any kitchen. Free up one of those cabinets for something else!

        KitchenLab Interiors added this to 6 Kitchen Fixes for NomadsMay 21, 2011

        I've painted every apartment I've ever lived in, and there have been more than two dozen of them. I don't regret a single one, and even though my landlords said I'd have to paint it white before I moved out, everyone who came to see it as a potential replacement renter wanted to keep the painting as is, so I never had to! That said, go neutral. Don't get crazy and paint the cabinets orange or green, not only will you get sick of it, but your landlord will make you paint them white before you move out and that's so not worth it.

        Becky Harris added this to Cockadoodledoo! Roosters in the KitchenMay 5, 2011

        I love this kitchen and all its accessories. You can tell that not only does someone cook here, but also that others gather and keep the chef company. Somehow that cutie rooster up on the vent hood is helping tell this story; he keeps this kitchen from taking itself too seriously.

        They'll keep items close at hand and easily retrievable when you're in the midst of cooking.

        KitchenLab Interiors added this to Kitchen Design: Bringing Restaurant Style HomeDec 18, 2010

        Stainless steel. Looking to add a little bit of restaurant feel to your kitchen but not looking for a major overhaul? Visit your local restaurant supply store (or online) and get a freestanding stainless table or island. They can be used for a kitchen table, for a small bar off to the side, or for a full-fledged island. And of course, add a wall-mounted pot rack or two and show off those kitchen utensils and pans.

        KitchenLab Interiors added this to Defining a Look: European Eclectic KitchensDec 8, 2010

        Continue the European feel with an open furniture-style island. You have to give up the closed storage that base cabinetry offers, but you can't deny the impact on the look. Go for something vintage to add texture and a more collected-over-time appeal.

        I like how this rack includes the open metal shelves for heavier pots as well as hanging hooks for pans.

        Mike and Suzy Hiskey added this to Stove DesignsMay 13, 2019

        Combo shelf/rack may be a good option
