Not a single bad countertop in the bunch.
Give the heart of your home a well-deserved upgrade using these stylish spaces for inspiration.
1. Durable Countertops
A Napa Valley farmhouserelies on scratch-resistant Caesarstone (a Good Housekeeping Seal-holder!) for easy cleaning. A striped rug adds comfort underfoot.
2. Island Storage
Hide linens, platters and single-use items under the island. Hidden cabinets on both sides double up as a place to stash spots.
3. Instant Table
Dreaming of an eat-in kitchen? Extend the countertop over the edge of a block island and it transforms into a casual dining spot.
4. Multitasking Pot Rack
Let your copper cookware steal the show by mounting a rack and sturdy metal hooks. It creates a kitchen-worthy focal point in place of a backsplash and frees up precious cabinet space.
5. Cushy Bench
A cozy booth beats out stools any day. Fake a snug nook in the middle of the room by pulling up a plush island-height bench. Sunday brunch just got so much better.
6. Geode Pulls
Boring hardware just won’t do. Select unexpected knobs, like these quartz sparklers, for glamor at your fingertips.
7. Cool Neutrals
Custom cabinetry is more accessible than you think. This sleek space uses IKEA cabinets in two colors that seamlessly blend into the walls and floor.
8. Multitasking Table
Put your small space to work as both a kitchen and a dining room. Tuck stools under an island that can handle prep work and dinner parties. The owners of this tiny Brooklyn home added iron legs to a slab of butcher block for a versatile surface.
