Good Questions: Kitchen Showroom Recommendations?

Hello AT,

Well we've finally reached the stage we've waited years for - the demo is complete and we can now finally design our kitchen... we find ourselves completely stuck in the headlamps. It's a big space, low ceilinged but will have loads of natural light coming from a glass wall to the garden and a woodburning stove in the existing fireplace...

We want something simple and contemporary but we have three very young children so nothing too minimalist (we're also not tidy enough).We intend to put most of the cabinets on the right hand wall and will probably have no upper ones as we like the look.

As for materials...... We live in NYC so if anyone can suggest some good showrooms for ideas that would be great too.

Any suggestions very welcome.

Thanks, Aileen.

Dear Aileen,

Congratulations! Of course, budget is a big variable here, but we're going to give you our two faves that cover two angles:

HenryBuilt - They are still new to NYC (from Seattle), but they are American, Eco, Modern and Warm in their styling. They are also high quality. Here's ours that went in last summer.

IKEA - We have a softspot for their kitchens and really like the value that they deliver. In particular, we favor the Akurum/Rationell Series in the high red gloss. We'd also skip their counters and go with a nice white marble to change the style. These friends did it and it rocked:
