Light is one of the most element which should be considered when you design and decor the kitchen.With good lighting as the goal and the homeowner’s Arts and Crafts furniture as inspiration, this kitchen remodel became truly enlightened.
While the kitchen still connects to the living room, it now features its own gathering place: a granite-topped island with an attached round dining-height kitchen table that matches the cabinets. Removing vertical blinds from the sliding glass patio doors allows more natural light to enter and shows off the Mission style grille pattern that matches the picture window and glass cabinet doors. Recessed lighting throughout the room provides extra illumination for evening gatherings.
A cramped U-shaped layout trapped the cook in a small space and blocked the flow of traffic. Ceiling soffits pushed the cabinetry downward, wasted potential storage space and made the room feel smaller while blocking natural light from the picture window over the sink.
Golden Lighting granite countertops and matching full-height backsplashes add an artistic touch to the room while accentuating the warm tones in the cherry cabinetry. A simple stainless steel ventilation hood and sleek cabinet pulls bring a modern touch to this Arts and Crafts kitchen. An appliance garage to the right of the sink hides away a flat-screen television.
Decorative pendants clustered over the kitchen table provide both functional and fashionable lighting while three pendants over the island echo the kitchen’s Arts and Crafts style. The refinished wood floors keep this kitchen’s look light and airy.
