Efficiency and Style

This wide view of the open kitchen from the great room highlights the efficient layout and serious style of the space, from the custom copper and black light fixture above the waterfall quartz center island to the graphic black and white tile floor.

Waterfall Feature

The island's waterfall quartz top with veining offers display space for vases of flowers or bowls of fruit that add color and texture to the kitchen. The waterfall feature was an important design decision, since this kitchen sits open to the great room.

Custom Island

The cabinets and drawers in the back of the island have a rustic gray finish that shows the grain of the wood, to give the island a special presence that contrasts with the black cabinetry used on the perimeter of the kitchen.

Touchless Faucet

The kitchen's matte black touchless faucet makes it easy to clean up when preparing or cooking food, with just a simple wave of the hand (or kitchen pan or utensil) under the faucet to turn it on or off.

Remote Controlled Skylights

The kitchen's two skylights that flood the space with natural light include touchscreen remote controls to open and close the units from below. Remote-operated shades on the skylights can be closed when less light is desired.

Handsome Wall Unit

The distressed woods used for the kitchen's triple sliding glass door wall unit for storage of dishware, cookbooks and more give the wall system a sophisticated yet relaxed feel and stand-alone look from the surrounding black cabinetry.

Great Flow

This view of the kitchen from the sitting area in the great room shows the strong connection between spaces, which makes it easy for the host to interact with guests and move from space to space with entertaining essentials.

Matte Black Sink

Located in the island, the under-mount single-bowl matte black kitchen sink with rack is made of a composite material that offers extreme durability.

Chic Coffee Area

Mornings are easier thanks to the kitchen's top-notch coffee maker that balances beauty and performance. Simply grind beans and initiate the brew, and the coffee maker will expertly time the bloom and then brew with the ideal water-grounds ratio and let you know when your coffee is ready to enjoy.

Undercabinet Lighting System

From speakers and smart phone docks to lights and outlets, an array of modular components that swap out easily are part of the kitchen’s undercabinet lighting system. Mounted on the kitchen wall, an inductive charging wall-mount keeps the home’s tablet charged and ready for use. The phone in this photo is not given away as part of the prizing.

Connected Spaces

This view shows the open kitchen looking from the hallway that leads to the laundry room and three-car garage.

Style and Storage

Framed modern art decorates the backsplash to the left of the wall ovens, above counterspace that can be used for displaying potted plants or resting a tray of drinks and plates for an upcoming dinner party.

Cooking Zone

Normal subway-sized tiles specified in copper create a stunning backsplash for the kitchen, seen here behind the 36-inch five-element induction cooktop with a wall mount 3-speed black canopy hood above. Open shelves on each side of the cooktop offer display storage for books, canisters and decorative items.

Tasty Beans

The HGTV Smart Home 2017 kitchen includes a handy supply of nutritious and tasty beans for any grill out or gathering.

Touch of Drama

Modern black flat cabinets and drawers that offer lots of organized storage also add drama to the kitchen.

Copper Drawer Pulls

Warm rosy copper drawer pulls add the perfect finishing touch for the kitchen's soft-close black drawers.

Graphic Floor

Designer Tiffany Brooks took black and white floor tile on a diagonal and made it into a Southwestern tribal pattern that adds stunning style and local flavor to this dramatic open kitchen.

Open Floor Plan

This view from the hallway to the garage looking towards the great room and bar area shows the close proximity the kitchen enjoys to these connected spaces.

Touchscreen Remote

A touchscreen remote on the island controls the two skylights that flood this open kitchen with lots of natural light.

Charming Counter Stools

The four upholstered counter stools at the kitchen island have a nailhead trim detail for a finished look.

Black Stainless Dishwasher

The kitchen's top-notch black stainless dishwasher in the center island has a feature that determines the ideal cycle for washing dishes based on the soil level, and then makes real-time adjustments to achieve the best cleaning performance.

Plug-In Convenience

A pop-out outlet in the island makes it easy to charge myriad electronic devices.

Great First Impression

This look into the well-detailed open kitchen from the foyer shows the beautiful view that greets visitors when they enter the home.

Attractive Pantry

The kitchen includes an adjacent walk-in pantry with storage for dry goods and a bench for changing shoes by a door that leads out to the side of the home.

Smart Features

The pantry exterior door features smart window treatments that can be operated by an app on a smartphone or tablet.

Bench Area

The pantry's bench area includes a custom upholstered rectangular bench with lower shelf for shoes and accent pillows for comfort. Modern wall art above the bench dresses up the space.

Attractive Art

The storage area of the well-organized pantry also features quartz counters and Shaker-style white painted maple cabinet doors with wall art for decoration and the same funky hardware used for the black cabinets in the kitchen.

Open Storage

The pantry's open shelves offer storage for baskets with fresh vegetables, beverage bottles, canned goods and canisters for dry food items like pasta and snacks.

High-Tech Skylight

A skylight in the pantry, like the ones seen in the adjacent kitchen, includes a touchscreen remote control to open and close from below and remote-operated shades that allow less light in when desired.

Multi-Functional Space

This wide look at the open kitchen from the great room shows the handsome design details that give the space style, as well as the multiple storage areas and efficient layout that makes it easy to prepare meals and interact with guests.
