An Inviting Cook Space

HGTV Dream Home is always a sight to behold, and as food people, the Food Network team loves to take a lingering glance at each year's kitchen. This year's space, inspired by the serene coastal town of Newport, RI, is especially meditative and transportive — plus it's a room we'd love to cook in, for so many practical and stylish reasons. Let's take a closer look at all the fantastic features.

Feeling inspired? Enter daily, once at HGTV.com and once at FoodNetwork.com, for your chance to win HGTV Dream Home 2021, a grand-prize package valued at over $2.8 million.

A Giant, Inviting Island

A kitchen island is like a magnet — everyone is drawn to gathering around it. And an island this large means there's room for everyone who wants to cook, perch on a stool or taste test!

Open Storage for Fun and Function

Reach around the island for easy access to everyday plates, or show off bright linens or cookbooks that are too pretty to hide.

Room to Move

Are we crazy for admiring this kitchen's flow? It's just the chef in us, we guess. We're starry-eyed over the wide paths (covered with pretty runners) and ample workspace in this kitchen.

Deep Storage Drawers

When it comes to storing cookware, it's much easier to find what you need by piling items into a drawer versus closing your eyes and reaching way back into a crowded shelf.

Coastal Flair

Deep navy, crisp white and a warm, deep red create a color palette that pairs perfectly with wicker accents.

A Sink With a View

Dishes might become the chore that everyone volunteers to do when it comes with an impressive view of the water.

A Sleek and Satisfying Range Hood

A stately hood is certainly kitchen goals (for both air filtration and fashionable reasons!). This one blends in beautifully with the kitchen's wall treatment, offering an understated elegance.

A Floor-to-Ceiling Pantry

An epic kitchen requires epic storage, and this thoughtful pantry means you can stock up for any cooking adventure you like.

Open Layout Appeal

A clever flow into the greater living space keeps cooking contained, but encourages a lively atmosphere where the family can prep meals, eat and lounge together all at the same time.

Easy Access to Outdoor Entertaining

The best part of this kitchen just might be what's outside it — a lovely, inviting deck. Throw open the French doors to invite guests to filter in and out of the room, experiencing everything this home has to offer.
