The 10 Most Popular Kitchens of the Week From 2018
“Features like cozy eat-in spaces, baking stations and a pizza oven inspired many kitchen renovation plans.”
“This Maryland family loves to bake together, but their existing kitchen didn’t give them enough room to roll out dough.
Interior designer Kirsten Kaplan incorporated a baking station, on the right, with marble counter tops, an alcove for a standing mixer, an adjacent pantry for ingredients and deep drawers for muffin tins, cookie sheets, cake pans, cooling racks and other supplies. Deep blue cabinetry, antiqued mirror panels and brass hardware make the area even more inviting.”
We completely transformed a crowded tiny kitchen into a spacious, beautiful and functional space perfect for baking (and eating) treats! Before renovating, this bright and airy family kitchen was small, cramped and dark. The dining room was being used for spillover storage, and there was hardly room for two cooks in the kitchen. By knocking out the wall separating the two rooms, we created a large kitchen space with plenty of storage, space for cooking and baking, and a gathering table for kids and family friends. The dark navy blue cabinets set apart the area for baking, with a deep, bright counter for cooling racks, a tiled niche for the mixer, and pantries dedicated to baking supplies. The space next to the beverage center was used to create a beautiful eat-in dining area with an over-sized pendant and provided a stunning focal point visible from the front entry. Touches of brass and iron are sprinkled throughout and tie the entire room together.
