4. Add glam. Interior designer Rebekah Zaveloff has been using grilles for quite some time. “This is still one of my favorite projects — the client and her friends often refer to it as sexy,” she says of this glamorous kitchen. “The grille adds a diamond pattern and glint.”Diamond-patterned grille: Brass Grilles UK
Here’s a different approach. This kitchen was too small for an island, but making it a galley would have wasted quite a bit of space in the center. The solution was to bump out a small peninsula off the main sink, giving the cook much needed extra counter space. This peninsula also is home to an under-counter freezer and allowed the homeowner to do a full, all-refrigerator unit. This small peninsula also has enough of an overhang for someone to pull up a stool on the other side.
