Design That Works With Traffic

Room for a Pantry

Small Yet Efficient Kitchen
In this U-shaped kitchen, the sink, range and oven are positioned to allow the cook to easily move from one to the other. Two windows and an opening over the stove keep the space from feeling closed in. Design by Tanya Griffin.
Smart Kitchen Storage
In this cozy English Country-style kitchen, designer Shane Inman took the cabinetry all the way to the ceiling to maximize storage space. Even the ends of the cabinet runs are utilized for shelving and a small desk.
Fun and Functional Kitchen
Designed by Lou Ann Bauer, this horseshoe-shaped kitchen features a unique, colorful design and a spacious, functional layout. The central island offers a lower countertop for prepping food and a higher countertop for casual dining. Photo by David Duncan Livingston.
Bright and Open
Vaulted ceilings make this horseshoe-shaped kitchen feel spacious and airy, while a large window floods the room with light. Varied cabinet heights prevent an artificial ceiling line from isolating the vaulted ceiling, allowing it to flow more naturally. Design by James Howard.
Angled Kitchen Island
A bar turned slightly toward the kitchen defines the space while maintaining an open feel. A cheery blue was selected for the wall color to make up for a lack of natural sunlight. Design by Teal Michel.
