How To Design A Stunning Open-Concept Kitchen
This rustic-modern home has it all — including a dreamy wall of windows! Get design tips for creating a kitchen, dining and living room that work together seamlessly from designer Gillian Lazanik of Affecting Spaces.
The contemporary home addition is filled with smart storage ideas — including toe-kick drawers, floor-to-ceiling kitchen cabinets and a charging station in the mudroom. Gillian effectively mixed multiple wood finishes in the space, including white oak, walnut, quarter-sawn veneer and reclaimed barnboard. In the kitchen and family room, large covelano marble slabs make a statement as both the backsplash and fireplace surround. Skylights flood the rooms with natural light, shining down on the white kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances. In the middle of the great room, Gillian designed a kids’ homework zone complete with chalkboard walls and a built-in desk, which easily hide away with a motorized roller shade. Over in the powder room, custom wood ledges let the homeowner showcase family photos.
