See-through counters keep the space light and airy, as do the open shelving and frosted glass cabinet doors, which open with simple finger holes.

Maximize your living space by giving every room—even the kitchen—a place where the family can hang out.

They also built an extra-wide center island to accommodate everything from food prep and cooking, to homework and lounging, including a spot for the TV. Now the kitchen is the true hub of the home.
Create an eat-in kitchen by pulling in a small table. Make that table bar-height and enjoy additional prep surface as well. We also like the sleek, black counter tops, which complement the white cabinets and hide blemishes and stains. Stainless steel appliances along with chrome hardware and chairs keep the space modern.
