There are so many custom details in the Room of the Week that make this kitchen extra-special and inviting. Most of the details added make the cabinetry in the kitchen look more furniture and less like standard cabinetry. Here are a few of my favorite details:
Free-standing turned legs give make the island look like a beautiful piece of antique furniture.
Special attention was paid to the styling of the dishes in the upper cabinets…they look artfully arranged, but still accessible.
Cabinetry in a contrasting finish (wood vs. painted white) gives a custom look to the kitchen. And the open fronts on the table make it look more like a console table and less like a kitchen cabinet.
Adding a piece of furniture that wasn’t specifically created for the kitchen is a great way to add character and give the kitchen a mix of function & beauty.
My two favorite details, the wood cabinet and the free-standing table, look seamless in the room because they match the height of the counters. If you are looking to add some additional countertop or cabinet space in your kitchen try adding a piece of furniture in the same height (usually 36″).
Here are a few of my favorite 36″ high tables/dressers/cabinets that could work in a kitchen even though they may not have been made specifically for that use.
