Ample Storage and Meal-Prep Room: After

Storage and counter space shortages are standard issue in old-house kitchens, and Jill Martin and Andrew Kylander-Clark's was no exception. But the couple, who share the 1940s bungalow, in Santa Barbara, California, with their two young sons, had a site- (and sight-) specific complaint: The kitchen was one big blind spot. "It was cut off from every other room in the house," says Jill, an avid home cook. "I needed to be able to make a meal and see what my kids were up to."

Shown: The sink got a new home in an existing bay with all-new windows for front-yard views. Open shelves and storage cubbies keep the space feeling airy and bright.
Sink: Rohl
