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. 

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.”

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. 

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. 

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. 

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.
