Great Room with Kitchen Island
This featured kitchen is a great great room layout (not quite a pun and it is intended) with a dining nook just off the kitchen.
The color contrast is dark and light with a dark wood floor, dark cabinets on the island with white glass covered cabinets on the walls around the island with light colored granite countertops.
The dark subway tile walls between the lower and upper cabinets along with the oil rubbed bronze light fixtures and faucets, and the dark pantry door with the white trim completes the color contrast.
Lighting is provided by large windows that allow natural light ambient light, recessed lights in the kitchen ceiling, and three pendant lights above the island bar (activity and eating area) as well as under cabinet task lighting to light the countertops.
The range is in the island along with a sink which allows the cook to interact with family and friends while cooking whether entertaining or cooking dinner for kids while they do their homework.
This works because the light dark color contrast always seems pleasing to our eye, and the physical layout is ideal in that it allows the cook to not be “in the kitchen” cooking while the others are in the family room.
While kitchens are the emotional centers of our homes, until this great room idea caught on, our kitchens were not designed to be. The great room idea brings everybody into the kitchen (or brings the cooks into the family room) by virtue of the kitchen being part of the larger area where day to day life happens.
Who wouldn’t want such an open airy functional kitchen for themselves and their family?
