Here are a few of our favorites to try in your own kitchen:

Extend your Kitchen Island

Keep things simple and open with a functional center kitchen island and lots of below-counter storage. Deep kitchen drawers provide plenty of easy-access storage and they keep clutter out-of-site. Take advantage of both sides of a kitchen island for additional drawers and storage.

You can add additional seating to an eat-in kitchen by extending your island countertop 14-18” (40cm) and adding a few counter height stools. Not only will you add additional eating and entertaining space, but you’ll extend your prep area. This is a great way to get family members and guests involved in making a meal.

Add Some Color

One of our favorite kitchen ideas is to give white kitchen cabinets a splash of color with colorful solid surface countertops. Look for popular solid surface brands such as Corian , Avonite , and Silestone . You’ll find many great colors to choose from or have a custom color made by submitting a PMS ( Pantone ) color or color swatch. We used Peach Echo (PANTONE 16-1548), a warm peachy orange color, in this kitchen design to create a crisp, modern, and on-trend color scheme.

Focus Your Lighting

Don’t forget about the lighting. In kitchens, lighting is very important. Illuminate your open eat-in kitchen with pendant lights.  Place a row over an open countertop or kitchen island to provide task lighting.  Add the same style light in a larger size over your dining table to complete the modern look.
