Room For Inspiration: 4 Fine Kitchens
The kitchen is the place where you fill your belly and feed your soul. With some imagination, you can make yours a dream. Let these 4 designs inspire you.
1. This granite greatness
This is the kitchen where you flambé, fricassee, and fraternize. There’s a lot going on—granite countertops, a tile backsplash, carbonized bamboo floors—but together, it all works. With a dual oven and six burners, this professional-quality stainless steel range is a chef’s vision. Open and expansive, this space provides plenty of room to sous-vide those ribs or sauté that stir-fry.
2. This mosaic of style
This is the place where you savor cappuccinos and soak in some R&R. With roots as far back as ancient Rome, mosaic art is a long-lost craft. In this kitchen, glass and stone blend together harmoniously into one stunning mosaic tile backsplash. Against white cupboards and countertops, brown and tan provide a pleasing contrast.
3. This woodsy-cabin kitchen
This is the perfect place to rise early and relish in the moment, coffee in hand. The space is simple, charming, and naturally breathtaking. It’s all wood, and it’s all good. Different species and grains of wood weave in the contrast needed to pull this look together.
The vinyl floors look like real wood, but with an extra layer of protection against moisture. You can spill, splash, and slop your away around—and look stylish while you’re doing it.
4. This glorious granite
This is the kitchen where you chop, slice, and dice ‘till your heart’s content. This dazzling granite counter is elegant, charming, and surprisingly low-maintenance. Shown here in a gorgeous, speckled texture (Tan Brown), these countertops don’t easily show spills and spatters. With hard-wearing natural stone properties, and protection against corrosion, heat, and scratches, these counters will look dazzling for years to come.
