Kitchen Tour: Small Urban Kitchen

A clean, modern design makes this small galley kitchen live larger.

    Everything in this slideshow

    • Urban Renewal

      The unexpectedly modern look of the kitchen in this 1941 home gives it a city look. Smooth lines from the light-wood cabinets, wrought-iron accents, and green glass tiles create a clean, urban feel.

    • Galley Layout

      The kitchen is a two-wall galley with a curved island that opens to the adjacent family room, making the space live larger. The room may be small, but everything is within reach for maximum efficiency.

    • Sophisticated Surface Sheen

      White cabinets, brass-finish hardware, and dark-green laminate countertops were traded for oak edging that give a more suave, sophisticated look. Clean-lined, light-wood cabinets set a contemporary tone, accented by frosted-glass panels and slender stainless-steel pulls. Granite counters and glass tile reflect the natural light that flows through an enlarged sink window.

    • Cool Stools

      Retro stools at the rounded island resemble an old soda-fountain style. The stylish seating makes it easy to watch TV while enjoying lunch with the family.

    • Double Sink Basin

      The deep double sink is deep enough to allow space for arranging flowers and washing large pots and pans. The view from the sink is of a lush garden.

    • Iron Island Style

      The round island, girded in glass tile and wrought iron, is the room's focal point. The iron piece follows style cues from the family room, while the tile provides contemporary context, keeping the room traditional but with a modern twist.

    • Vertical Views

      The cooking area, with its statuesque hood and upright upper cabinets that extend to the 8-foot ceiling, emphasize the vertical dimension of the kitchen. The tall cabinets take advantage of the height and add storage.

    • Drawer Storage

      Drawers carry much of the storage load when it comes to cooking supplies. The deep drawers are ideal for storing pots, lids, containers, and other cooking odds and ends.

    • Recycled Glass Tile

      The tile on the island and backsplash is eco-friendly and made of recycled glass. The changing light reflects different colors on the surface. Glass bottles of oil and vinegar on display by the range echo the color and translucence of the tile.
