I also love the green touch , wish the stools were black ..like the countertop then the room would be perfect in my mind.. ...normally I don't like that color green but it works beautifully here!

We typically try to allow at least a 12" overhang with 24" of width for each stool.

This is a great kitchen! It looks to be close to the size of our new kitchen space. May I learn the dimensions of this kitchen? I'm trying to get a sense if an island is feasible for us. Beautiful space! A pleasure to look at.

How many inches is the pendant hanging down? - I'm getting ready to order lights for our island and have no idea how low they should be hung? We have an 8' ceiling in the kitchen. Could you do two 15.5" wide pendants with a 66" island…or would that be too much? thanks…I'm clueless.

Hello ... there is another picture of this kitchen from a different angle that shows the microwave better. It is not a typical "built-in" microwave. We tend to prefer providing a slide-in cubbie for microwaves where possible. This makes it easier for the homeowner to slide-in a new microwave when the old one breaks down or something better comes along.

Thanks for your question. Application of this beadboard ceiling over an existing ceiling, would probably require that furring strips / nailers be applied prior to beadboard install. These would serve as solid attachment for the beadboard.

8. Pendant lights. Low-hanging pendants help a kitchen feel cozy and also provide all-important task lighting. Select models that have a retro feel, with shades of seeded or frosted glass or brushed nickel. If you like, mix the pendants with vintage-inspired sconces and perhaps even a lamp or two to create a collected feel.In this series: How to Find Your Kitchen Style | How to Remodel Your KitchenMore: So Your Style Is: Cottage10 Reasons to Bring Back the Kitchen TableHow to Add Cottage Charm to Your Kitchen
