Kitchen Finalists in the HOWIES

By Dan Gregory

A window backsplash adds an innovative twist to this modern kitchen.

Meet some of the kitchen finalists in the HOWIES, our first annual design awards program, like Plan 496-21, shown above. The backsplash is a long ribbon window, bringing in light and views.

In Plan 56-222, the large island multi-tasks -- for food prep, storage, and buffet.

In Plan 479-11, the island is topped with butcher block and includes shelving for cook books.
