A second, brand new kitchen rises out of the ashes

The kitchen design ideas incorporated in this area reflect the high amount of activity seen in this space. Wide walkways keep guests from feeling over-crowded while dual islands and two sinks allow for maximum prep space and efficiency.

Kitchen cabinets abound in this open space, many of them sporting glass-front doors, but what guests don't see are the specialty touches like velvet-lined drawers for fine silverware, a built-in tea box, built-in speakers and a pull out for linens.

Two kitchen sinks were installed for these homeowners due to their affinity for entertaining. Having two separate sinks makes both prep time and clean up time a breeze.

This kitchen features a plethora of decorating ideas, but the owners favorite is the use of different kinds of molding throughout the area. They used a mix of acanthus, key, dentil and egg and dart, all of which help to eliminate the sense of bulk that a large volume of cabinetry risks.

A variety of depths in both upper and lower cabinets breaks up the long wall visually and functionally.

The kitchen island countertops curve invitingly, enabling guests to feel welcome to take a seat while the chef is preparing a meal.

This kitchen cabinet, right next to a set of double ovens, hides a two-tiered rubber-lined storage specifically for cookie sheets.

Kitchen light fixtures are now straying away from the traditional ceiling lighting. Many homeowners are now adding soft lights to the underside of their cabinetry and to the inside of a glass-front cabinet or display shelf.

The kitchen paint colors used throughout this space help to set a cheery, homey mood in this large kitchen.
