True confession – I’m in love with today’s craftsman style kitchen by Joseph Rodrigues Interiors that wraps you in hug the minute you enter. The wall tile is a showstopper and the green cabinets are right on trend. Can someone just pick up this kitchen and adjoining dining spaces and add it onto my house?
Pale wood floors and a kitchen island keep the space from feeling too dark. The light counter tops also keep the room from feeling cave-like.
From this view, you can see the dining area that’s just behind the kitchen island and breakfast bar. The table enjoys a wagon wheel light fixture overhead.
Step back and you’ll see that the craftsman style kitchen is sort of an open-style galley kitchen. It doesn’t take up a lot of space, but its beauty and functionality make up for the small footprint. The refrigerator is on the left, encased in the same custom cabinetry. This helps provide a seamless flow to the eye.
A built-in cabinet stained the same shade as the kitchen island provides additional storage space in the dining area. Soft, upholstered chairs are paired with a farmhouse bench at the table.
That tile though! I love it. Along with the custom range hood that looks like dark brick with copper trim. A pot filler (something I’ve always wanted but don’t really need) takes residence above the ILVE stove. I like when ovens are elevated off the ground so it’s easier to clean beneath them.
Here’s a better view of the refrigerator hidden behind the green cabinetry.
To the right of the kitchen is a cheery breakfast nook with wraparound windows that provide an outdoor view no matter where you sit. I think the leather bar stools are the perfect choice for the craftsman style kitchen. They help retain a classic look.
The round area rug enhances the shape of the breakfast nook while repeating the green that was used in the kitchen. A copper pendant light works beautifully in this space.
