8 Thanksgiving-Ready Kitchen Design Details

We’re thankful for the many families who have welcomed us into their homes throughout the year, sharing personal styles and lessons learned during major renovations. The kitchens we’ve toured have much in common—variations on tile, stone, cabinetry, and appliances all with a universal goal of creating a daily space for food and family and friends. In celebration of the room that gets your Thanksgiving dinner on the table, here are a few kitchens with all the trimmings that found stand-out ways to welcome, create, and clean up.

A wrap-around waterfall counter connects the kitchen and dining room below with extra seating for guests. We’re wishing Joel and Eric (and American Eskimo pup, Comet!) a very happy Thanksgiving in their new home.
