Displayed collections. As long as there’s a place for everything and everything is in its place, there’s no reason not to keep your favorite items on full display. Pot racks, plate racks, a few open shelves and a glass‐front cabinet let these homeowners enjoy their copper cookware, silver and china from the kitchen table, which takes up most of the room in this charming kitchen.
You can also create a U‐shaped kitchen by adding a freestanding island to an L‐shaped kitchen. In this case, the one end cabinet was turned to face away from the kitchen, and a beadboard end panel was added to allow for a place to intersect the open island. Because the island is open, you have knee space for stools and seating without needing an overhang.
Ecofriendly Kitchen Counters. A little research is really all that's required today to make your new kitchen ecofriendly. The wide variety of material styles and costs – from salvaged wood to Bio‐Glass to bamboo (shown in this photo) – means you can find just the right green countertop material for your home.
