If you want to go with a more straightforward design in your kitchen remodel plans, then this kitchen will serve as a good template to go by. What works so well about it is the counter space and all the storage options. The counter is great because the sink is on the end, and that same counter area is also good as a prep station, and even an eating area. So you can get three different uses out of just one spot in the kitchen. Let us not forget the color scheme, though. We have a nice combination of hardwoods and wood cupboards that creates a very comfortable atmosphere.
