HGTV Dream Home 2004: Kitchen Pictures

The decorating theme of this whitewashed kitchen is clean, bright and elegantly functional.

  • Simple Yet Elegant Cabinets

    Unique to Dream Home 2004 is the furniture-like, custom-built cabinets. The kitchen design theme is built around these large, wonderful and timeless, cabinets crafted by Jerry Boyett.

  • Ample Storage Space

    All the cabinetry, including the center island and the stovetop base, have bracketed feet that integrate well with the Victorian style of the home. All of the pieces have a myriad of drawers and shelves, providing ample space for food and cookware. The stainless-steel appliances are located on one wall (with a dishwasher tucked into the island), giving the kitchen and great room spaces the sense that it's filled with furniture.

  • Luxurious Additions

    Two more distinctive features that give the kitchen its timeless warmth are the tin ceiling tiles and the dumbwaiter. The appeal of the tin ceiling is immediate and striking, evoking Victorian style while still allowing the modern features of the kitchen to shine. Tucked underneath the stove is a dumbwaiter perfect for lifting groceries and other goods from the ground floor garage.

  • Victorian Chandelier

    Looking up at the ceiling is a special treat when one notices the unique chandelier. \"The chandelier is wonderful,\" says interior designer Linda Woodrum. \"It's just such a wonderful statement, very Victorian and the finishing touch in the room.\" The delicate balance of old and new, as well as connecting the great room and dining room, make the kitchen a vibrant social destination for family and guests alike.
