Kitchen ideas

This is an rendering of a kitchen from the 1920s and is the look that inspires what I'd like to do in our kitchen renovation.

If you put a black and white floor in this one, and replaced the handles and fixtures, it's close to perfect-

I also like many things about this one--the black and white floor on the diagonal, butcher block countertops, some open shelving for our everyday glasses and white dishes, and racks taking advantage of wall space. I also like how the wood shelves and table, along with the countertops, give the room warmth.

Love, love, love this-

For an alternative to black and white, I like this play off of a traditional checkered floor using tiles--subtle but still a vintage feel.

Ryan wants a dining set like this one, with a bench on one side. It would work well for us, as we could put three kids on the bench and still seat four adults comfortably. So when we create a dining space, we'd like it to be large enough to accommodate something like this.
