Cozy Cottage Kitchen

Last Saturday we toured a black and white kitchen renovation and today I’ve got a cute blue and white kitchen to share with you. Last week’s kitchen was on the classic elegant style, while today’s tour is a cozy cottage kitchen that’s light and bright. The charming kitchen enjoys blue lower cabinets and white uppers.

A classic farmhouse sink is a focal point in the kitchen. Floating wood shelves provide storage and display favorite pieces.

Wood floors provide classic appeal in the cozy cottage kitchen. A vintage schoolhouse light overhead adds charm all its own.

White subway tile fills the wall from ceiling to counter tops.

A convenience breakfast bar creates a transition from the functional kitchen space to a charming breakfast nook. A vaulted ceiling overhead provides the illusion of more space

A banquette creates a cozy corner for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or a cozy dinner at night. Double windows allow plenty of natural light to flood the room.

The microwave oven is positioned above the stove in order to keep counter space free and uncluttered. The cottage kitchen is both functional and appealing.  Someday I’d like to have cabinets like this, with a Shaker style cabinet door. Eventually we’ll replace our cabinets for a better grade, but first I’d like to change the location of our door that leads outside. Stay tuned for that!

Are there any changes you’d like to make to your own kitchen? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below!

    The area to the left of the stove would make a great place to plug in the coffeemaker. Cups, coffee accessories, and decorative canisters could be displayed on the shelves above it. And being in that position, would make the coffee pot easily accessible for anyone sitting the breakfast nook.

  2. I just renovated my kitchen. I am all white shaker doors and subway tile with the dark grout. Med brown colored floors. I did laminate flooring as I could not afford the hardwood but I must say they look beautiful and I already have had a few people who couldn’t see the difference. I still have yet to put y open shelving on this one small part of the wall between my windows and get blinds. I must say going into this renovation make sure you have a good contractor. I was very lucky and found one. Also be prepared to have no kitchen for at least 4-5 weeks. Your bathtub becomes your new friend in more ways than one lol. In the end though as long as all goes mostly smooth your end result will look magnificent and you’ll be glad you did it. I know I am.

    When i had my kitchen redone i didn’t have a place for my microwave to be up and off my counter space and i wish i had.

  4. Hmm, now you have me wondering about where your door would move to. I’ve been thinking about painting my upper cabinets off white and changing the hardware, along with putting in Glass fronts on 3 of the doors. The problem is……. I seem to gave misplaced my ambition.

  5. I love the simplicity of his kitchen – and I love the breakfast bar. So many are removing the “L” shape bars when they renovate and putting in islands, but I’ve always thought the breakfast bar separation from the eating space was ideal. Wish I had a kitchen like this. Sigh…..

  6. I am intrigued by open shelving, but not sure about it long term. Would it get very dusty? Would I have to climb up there more often to clean the shelves? Would they get grease on them (esp the ones by the stove)? I would like to hear from people after theyve had them a year or two how they feel about them.
