Open-concept cooking



Alesi Custom Builders & Renovators, Inc. designed this Bethany Beach kitchen. The open-concept connects the cooking space to the dining area and living space with a large island for entertaining. On sunny days, an exterior door connects this kitchen to an outside kitchen.

Photo finish



Gayle Wright of Bath Kitchen and Tile Center helped a client create the kitchen of their dreams from a photo. She chose stunning Taj Mahal Quartzite countertops and paired them with a Calacutta Ora tile backsplash.

Classic kitchen



This kitchen will never go out of style, thanks to the keen design eye of Chrystal Hess of Bath Kitchen and Tile Center. The Timberlake Kinsdale Espresso cabinets pair perfectly with the Viscount White Granite countertops and Renova gray flooring. (Jes Sue Photography)

Double vision



Cheryl Umbles Interior Design took the existing kitchen in this historic Bancroft home from its casual, eclectic style and transitioned it to a timeless, fully functional space for a busy young family. The space was gutted from floor to ceiling, making way for a stunning seven-foot island, an adjoining baker’s cabinet and perimeter cabinets with two of every appliance, all capped in a translucent quartzite.

Bright white



Kate FitzGerald-Wilks by Timeless Design renovated this kitchen, which features an eye-catching backsplash of mother-of-pearl mosaic tiles and white glazed hand-thrown subway tiles. The white beadboard-front shaker cabinets, marble-like quartz countertop and chrome cabinet pulls give a bright and modern feel, which is accentuated by the white and chrome low back leather stools, and chrome pendants.

Light blue hue



Megan Gorelick Interiors, Inc. created a dreamy kitchen for her client with the help of light blue paint, Currey and Company lighting and barstools from Sunpan.

Functional flow



Kate FitzGerald-Wilks by Timeless Design reimagined this dated kitchen and rarely used dining room into a substantial, fully customized kitchen with a large island for entertaining and food preparation. Function was accomplished by reconfiguring the floorplan—the wall between the kitchen and dining room was removed and the orientation of the spaces was flipped to create a more open concept, which improved overall flow.
