On http://houseandhome.com/tv, designer Maia Roffey explains how a dated kitchen was transformed into a bright, airy space combining lacquered white cabinetry, crackle tile, and warm wood flooring. See how clever touches like an island that seats six comfortably, floor-to-ceiling tile walls and a striking display shelf make this kitchen practical, as well as lending it a slightly European vibe. Watch the next two segments from this episode at http://houseandhome.com/tv/episode/fresh-old-world-kitchen-multipurpose-dining-room, along with hundreds of other segments!

While putting all those displays was very slow and careful... which is far from reality. Whenever we use our kitchen we are almost always busy and fast. So I could imagine this kitchen would have so much clutter in a minute.

The designer 's air about the out of date kitchen was off-putting. And, where is the "old world" portion of the update? "Meh" all around.

I noticed they always, always mentioned that "the homeowners love entertaining guests". I'm wondering how often do they have guest(s) coming to have to cook dinner for?

Already way out dated, especially the light fixture

Too clinical. The look needs to be softened with either some colour or some variance in texture, probably with both. You really can have too much white shiny surface, especially with three lines of workspace built so closely together. I would need to escape from it quite often.

I love the layout of this kitchen but I don't like all of the white or the countertops. I would have to have softer stools also..but I do love the layout. Maybe its the cabinet hardware I don't like. I guess it's just not my style but overall if the homeowner loves it, that's all that matters ❤

Her laughing at people for having older appliances shows how out of touch she is with our economy right now

Refrig, sink and stove are all in a long line, not the triangle that would work much better. Too much white. Need sunglasses to cook.

A work triangle in the kitchen is efficient, but the second choice behind this layout which is a "Pullman" and preferred by chefs. You move a very little distance from the fridge to the sink to the stove without having to carry food over the floor and risk spilling.

Truly timeless design

I get the reference of old style and the clean look of modern well mixed . I would see myself cooking and entertain there

There is so much white, but love the fact that the brown is so cohesive. Its all different shades of same tone of brown. Otherwise a lot of times the browns in a room are so different!

How is this "old-world?" I guess "inspired" was the operative word here and it was used very liberally. Really misleading title.

White does not equal boring! Beautiful

I wouldn't define this as Old World style, this is very modern.

I love the simplicity in this kitchen! Not a fan of the light fixture.

Would have had a wooden shelf to match the floor and balance the room

Surprised the island is solid and blocks all that natural light. Seems like a cramped space

Too much white, not enough color, and I was really interested in the 'timeless old world inspired kitchen' and nothing applied to the title.  So I found this disappointing.
Beautiful white kitchen with Ikea cabinets that doesn't look like it came from the catalogue. Great transformation!

I'm surprised that this kitchen is for someone who cooks a lot. It's NOT practical. First, the vent by the stove will not support big batch cooking, frying, etc. Furthermore, the thick board for decorative dishware and art. Really?? How about dust and grease magnet? It's nice to have a pretty kitchen, but also think about what's it for — cooking.

Omg the stove functions as additional workspace: it's Kay's new kitchen! LOVE the pantries. What is the benefit of having convection versus plain electric?
Sylvia Wong (5 months ago)
Didn’t write the first sentence but replied to question about convection oven benefit.
Sylvia Wong (5 months ago)
The blue ocean washed away my panties. Convection circulates the heat evenly around oven a nice benefit.

I LOVE this kitchen! I would love to see in this channel an all white kitchen like this one on espresso/dark brown flooring! Is that even possible? Please give me some ideas! 😂
Gina Reynolds (1 month ago)
Of course it is..

Nice kitchen ! Love the white on white, although many complain about white and it seems to be the new online fad; white is still a classic type look that will not go out of style and allows a person to add colours through their art , plants, window treatment and lighting as they see fit. But, I did not like how the oven is separate from the cook top. I think I would have placed the oven directly below the cook top and I was not impressed with the automated cooktop exhaust ....I think it would be more effective overhead but I understand the idea of having clean lines.

Everyone has their own ideal, but I like this modern twist on a classic design. I love it but not everyone likes subtlety.

Shame on you for being so judgemental. If you don't like it, move on to the next design.
Candisa (2 years ago)
Shame on you for looking down on a designer because you are too ignorant to recognise the concept! There's clearly put thought and effort in playing with different structures, lines, and textures, adding just enough wooden and brass accents without disturbing the harmony using a single dominant colour brings. White simply reflects light and energy better than no other colour while being timeless. I also fail to see a suggestion on how you would have done it better!?

the hood pops up, love this idea the more I sees it.
