Workspace equals counter space in a kitchen. But wall placement doesn't always equal well-planned counter space; fortunately this kitchen shows how to do it right. For starters, the sink gets shoved to one side, freeing up a long stretch of prep area between that and the stovetop. Deep drawers keep supplies handy, and just a few uppers don't add fuss and mess to the sight lines. The recessed toe-kick plate and the white cabinets and ceiling help the space feel even more expansive.
