Rustic-industrial and contemporary design elements invite family and friends to gather in the kitchen.

Rolling island with GE Appliances

“The island and a banquette are great ways to switch it up and be more casual,” says Alison Victoria host of Kitchen Crashers.

Rolling reclaimed wood island

A mobile island is constructed with reclaimed wood, a patina copper surface and vintage-inspired crates.

Concrete countertop and metal stools

To maximize lake views from the kitchen, a wall of prairie-grid windows illuminate the space with natural light.

During the Blog Cabin's People's Choice voting period, online voters selected cherry cabinetry, which invites warmth and a bungalow motif.

Gray slate appliances inspire the tone and theme of surrounding kitchen materials. "Because the slate-line is a gray, no finger print finish, it works well with the kitchen sink," explains project manager Dylan Eastman.

Reclaimed wood island storage

Vintage-inspired fruit crates provide clever storage and a farmhouse feel.

Large enough for big meals, this free-standing range features a double oven and five heating surfaces.

Pot Hanger Above Island

A mix of metals and materials inspired the Kitchen Crashers team to design a space with functional features that entertain the eye. "I think when it comes to metal in a kitchen, you've got to bring it in the right way," says Alison.

GE appliances

Concrete countertops, made on site, infuse a farmhouse feel into the space and are low maintenance.

Mismatched drawer pulls add eclectic charm to the custom-built island.

Pantry storage with open french doors

The pantry provides plenty of room to store kitchen essentials, while glass doors give the illusion of more space in the kitchen.

A custom-designed rack crafted in a French Roast finish provides additional wine storage space.

"Because you can see in the pantry, you are always reminded of what you have," says Dylan.

The window seat features extra storage for table linens, serving pieces and more.

"This year we wanted something a lot bigger with options for people to sit at the banquette, bar, island, or dining room table and it feels like one space," explains Dylan.

The kitchen flows straight into the dining room — a floor plan ideal for entertaining. "The casement opening with the transom is a good way to transition between the ceiling heights, without it being noticeable," says Dylan.
