    It looks teensy in the first picture, but in the second it actually looks kind of cool with the angled bar. I don’t have a super strong opinion about it being cookie-cutter; it’s nothing special, but would be functional if that’s all you wanted. My DH and I cook a ton though so I would want a kitchen that I LOVED.

    @Mrs_Amanda:  Gorg! I would add knobs (and appliances lol) but it looks great.

    I like it very much! Feels very open, I like the colors and the wood used, and the countertops look great. The uneven heights on the cabinets seems like something that should bug me…but somehow it doesn’t, kinda adds a bit of charm to it.

    I would love a kitchen with that much space.

    I think its a great looking kitchen!!! I’m with PPs – door/drawer knobs and appliances will make a big difference

    It does look like the usual new construction kitchen, but it is still nice!  The only thing that bothers me is the cabinet and floor wood almost matching, but not quite.  I would prefer a contrasting palette.

    @Mrs_Amanda:  That is gorgeous!  Seems kind of awkward to eat your dinner at that table looking out at your neighbors porch tho, lol.

    The way it’s placed, counter space doesn’t seem to be practical, and since I love to cook, I really need the kitchen to be highly practical. It would be a no for me.

    The kitchen itself is fine (it’s kind of generic but not too generic. If it was in a house I was buying, it wouldn’t be a dealbreaker and I wouldn’t rip it out). What I don’t really care for is that, looking into the kitchen, you see the beige of the wall both going into the kitchen and opposite the kitchen, the white of the wainscotting (I think that’s what that stuff is called?!), the different brown of the walls in the kitchen and dining room, the OTHER different brown of the cabinetry, and the other other different brown of the molding above the cabinetry. It’s jarring.

    If it were my kitchen and I was building from scratch, I’d either go with white cabinetry (it’s sort of dark in there anyway) or brown wainscotting/crown molding in the dining room. I also am not sure that the unlevel cabinet tops aren’t going to look dated in about 5 years. They’ve been around for quite awhile, so I feel like they’re probably going to be on the wane sooner or later, but who knows. They have said that about granite so many times.

    TL;DR: I don’t hate it, but I would definitely change some things if possible.

    I don’t dislike it, but I don’t love it either. I think that I would ultimately find that I wasn’t utilizing all of the available space in that area and that would bother me. I’m a big fan of kitchens with counters around the perimeter and a floating island where you can have stools for eating in the kitchen and a gathering area that’s still very functional.

    I’m also not sure about the height of the counters where the high stools are. I really want a kitchen that is open to the more formal dinning area and/or living area. Right now I have a galley kitchen and I feel very closed in and separated from everyone else in it. I would like my next home to be very open in the kitchen. The tall counters/cupboards that form the perimeter of this kitchen don’t seem welcoming to me.

    Love the layout, but I would definitely paint it and change the curtains to make it more my style (neutral base with big pops of color!)
