I love this kitchen space because it is very practical and accessible, but its design makes it a very solid, very nice kitchen too. Sometimes people think they need to skimp on design elements in order to have a very practical kitchen, but this is not the case. This kitchen looks like it has been carved out of fine oak and pine, and then placed here for our culinary enjoyment. I love the range of brown, and also love the stools at the island. The window in the middle looks like it lights up the whole kitchen brilliantly. The silver appliances give extra visual flavor as well.
