Design your kitchen in way that will make you want to use it for more than just cooking! To create the feel of an inviting living space, choose appliances and fixtures that are attractive as well as functional. We love this kitchen, with its mix of traditional characteristics and bold, dramatic touches.

Use the room to entertain by designing a comfortable place to accommodate guests. Dining can be luxurious and cozy with a lovely marble-topped table and upholstered bar stools, all beneath sophisticated pendant lamps. And don’t be afraid to integrate artwork or display beautiful tableware on open shelving. If you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on a Zhu Lan original, try this piece by André Sprumont for under $200. Classic elements are easily updated with a few modern touches, turning this kitchen into a space for cooking, dining and entertaining that transcends styles.
