Thanksgiving is coming up, which means a lot of us are going to be spending plenty of time in the kitchen.

It might be a little late to get in one of these places in time for Thanksgiving 2016, but maybe you’ll see a kitchen below where you’ll want to spend Thanksgiving 2017.
↑ You might remember Hinoki House from our article in October when the Clyde Hill luxury sanctuary hit the market. Overall, the residence is an AIA Seattle Honor Award winner from 2009. The kitchen is what the owners consider “the stage” from which the open living space surrounding it can be the audience. The concrete island balances the space against a black Lacanche range. The dining area nearby overlooks a lily pond.
↑ You also might remember this $18M Vashon estate as The One With It’s Own Lighthouse. The kitchen isn’t too shabby either. A semi-circle that mixes wood, stone, and marble. Proximity to so many windows and the waterfront view ensure everything remains light and bright.
↑ Out in North Bend, you’ll find a 60-acre estate with this luxury home available for $9.9M. Originally built for former Boeing Chairman and CEO Phil Condit, the home’s kitchen balances rustic charm with luxury amenities. The bench-seating dinner table in front of the fireplace is a comfy touch.

The kitchen looks sleek but not intimidating. You can cozy up with a glass of wine at the counter while the chef preps dinner.
↑ Bellevue Towers penthouse unit 4201 is trying to break the record for condos sales in the city and the kitchen space is certainly helping it’s cause. The kitchen is just one end of a long entertaining area that almost looks more like a luxury bar atop a building than a residence.
↑ Owned by restauranteur and property developer Christine Bloch, this 2009-built property is all about sleekness, modernity, indoor/outdoor living and practically merging right into the Montlake Cut waterway out back. The kitchen space is smaller than the others we’ve seen but it feels like just an extension of the large living space that centers the $7.3M home.
↑ This $4.9M Des Moines property combines Italian and Pacific Northwest styles. The kitchen space is well-appointed and though it isn’t flashy, it complements the seaside vision of the house.
↑ The Georgian Colonial asking just over $2M in Mount Baker has a kitchen that’s equal parts throwback and stylish. The vintage ovens compliment the brickwork, while the marble slab counter, stainless steel appliances, and glass cabinets add the requisite modernity where needed.
