Our Best Cottage Kitchens
Transform your kitchen into a more inviting, laid-back space with ideas from our favorite cottage-style designs.
Decorative touches—like green soapstone counters and tole fronts on the upper cabinets—add color and style to the white kitchen without taking up space. The marble-and-iron table also doubles as an island work surface.
Push-out casement windows and panked walls add to the kitchen's vintage feel.
In this updated kitchen, which presented little opportunity for adding softness, the homeowner evoked warmth with color and texture. Against a backdrop of bright white open shelves and stainless steel appliances, she added a soft-black painted island topped with butcher-block. She also made sure to match the room's longleaf pine floors to the original boards that run throughout the downstairs.
