Graceful Classic Kitchen

Designer Shannon McCarthy describes how she remodeled this kitchen to give it a better flow.

A Place to Gather

The double islands in this large kitchen make room for extra hands – and extra visitors.

Professional Appliances

The pro-style appliances, like this Wolf double range, make easy work of everything from weeknight meals to large parties.

Farmhouse Sink

The extra-deep china sink and the marble countertops give this room traditional style.

Tile Backsplash

Even a simple tile design, like turning a border into a frame for offset tiles, can make a room feel special.

Layers of Light

When designing a lighting plan, use several types of light. This kitchen pulls on natural light, task lighting (the sconces over the sink) and ambient lighting (the recessed lighting in the cabinets).
