Yet another kitchen idea

I had to throw this into the mix, just in case we go with hardwood in the kitchen instead of checkered flooring. Many of the other elements are the same--white cabinets, some open shelving, apron sink--but the dark wood floors and dark countertops give it a more sophisticated look that I think would still work in a cottage-style home.

Here's the same idea: dark wood floors, white cabinets, white subway tile backsplash, soapstone countertops. This may well be my dream combo for a kitchen.

And last but not least, one more example. Ours would never look so pristine, but the key elements are all there and oh so lovely.

  1. If using stools, important to have knee room. The 1st photo looks like it has it, but the 2nd doesn't. I was in a home with overhang for stools that worked nicely - for both knees and opening up the walkway with stools (elevated chairs) pushed up flush. I'm a fan of the dark wood and dark counters, too! Nice contrast with the white, and white makes the space look brighter and bigger.
