This homeowner's interest in no-nonsense design is reflected in this kitchen: The shelving and the storage drawers are open for maximum visibility and accessibility. Maple cabinetry and a bamboo floor give this kitchen warmth. The space revolves around an island, which houses knives at its center. There's no sealer on the butcher block top, so it will acquire a patina. The soaring pale blue ceiling adds to the feeling of spaciousness.
