User-Friendly Design

To make this charming kitchen completely functional, interior designer Linda Woodrum opted for a triangle-style workspace. “When I think of smart design, I think of wisely designing a home that functions well on a high level, so that’s what Kelly Mockingbird, the design coordinator, and I tried to do through this whole process,” explains Linda. “It works well. Everything is in that small triangle, and it’s just very usable and functional.”

Industrial Apron Sink

The stainless steel apron sink has both modern and cottage appeal, a combination that defines this Austin home. 

Hot Water at the Ready

The kitchen’s chrome faucet boasts a sleek design with elegant detailing. Beside the faucet, a hot water dispenser is a convenient add-on that is sure to be appreciated. 

Exceptional Ceiling Style

A combination of recessed lighting and modern pendant lights illuminates the cooking space, which features high ceilings with built-in speakers. 

Island Seating

A trio of dark wooden bar stools supplies a comfortable place to enjoy an informal meal. 

Sleek Hardware

The kitchen is defined by bright white cabinetry, which features stainless steel handles, a look that adds to the home’s contemporary appeal. 

Hidden Trash Stash

A pull-out drawer reveals a concealed waste system, housing both a trash can and recycling bin in one convenient location. 

Bold Neutrals

Black pendant lights and dark wooden stools serve to add depth and contrast in this bold white kitchen, while stainless steel and chrome appliances lend a sophisticated, modern vibe. 

Grilling Get-Together

A great spot for family get-togethers and backyard grilling, this kitchen provides the perfect place to entertain. 

Concealed Entertainment

“We do have one really creative feature of the kitchen, which is the hidden television above the hood that works with a remote and works with the smart device,” says house planner Jack Thomasson. “Whether you are sitting at the island or you are cooking and watching the Food Network, you can drop that television down, which makes for a creative and smart feature in the kitchen.”

Pretty Pomegranates

Fresh fruit sitting on the counter is a great way to encourage healthy eating habits and bring in a pop of color at the same time. 

Backsplash Bling

This gorgeous metallic backsplash puts a modern spin on the classic white subway tile backsplash and adds a professional, industrial vibe to this cooking space. 

Cooking With Ease

A pot filler is a fantastic kitchen accessory that adds a level of luxury and convenience that cannot be overstated. 

Stainless Steel Style

A sleek stainless steel range is the star in this phenomenal cookery, which also features a stainless steel refrigerator and stainless steel vent hood. 

On-Hand Ingredients

Stunning pottery on a silver tray holds a batch of farmhouse eggs ready to be added to a delicious dish. 

Going Gray

While the kitchen island’s counter matches the white kitchen cabinets, the base of the island is painted in a soft gray that complements the room’s neutral color palette. 

Docking Station

Full of high-tech amenities, a docking station with iPad control is a must in this state-of-the-art smart home. This clever electronic controls everything, from lights to window shades, the security system to entertainment features. 

Everything Electric

“We created a nook that is your iPad docking station, which has an electrical outlet and two USB outlets,” says Jack. “There is an iPad docking station that is magnetic, and it charges your iPad as long as you have it docked there. So it’s a little control station in the kitchen.”

Island Storage

Drawers in the kitchen island provide extra storage within easy reach when prepping meals or working over the stove.

Kitchen Extension

Just outside the kitchen, a cozy screened-in porch provides the perfect spot for family or guests to congregate after dinner or while waiting for a meal to be served. 

Wonder of Lemons

A glass bowl beside the sink houses several fresh lemons, which can come in handy for drinks, meals and even cleanup, as the handy citrus fruit can be used to replace harsh chemical cleaners in the kitchen and bathroom. 

Extra, Extra

A wet bar provides an additional sink by the kitchen window as well as a small lower cabinet for added storage.  

Open Floor Plan

The open plan kitchen leads to a dining room with a table for six, making it easy to prepare a meal in the kitchen while setting the dining table for dinner.
