A typical builder’s kitchen called out for design assistance when the homeowner needed a better layout and more contemporary aesthetics. The original rectangular kitchen space incorporated cabinetry only on one end and created a large unused area at the other end.

  • By lengthening the island and rearranging the cabinet storage, the kitchen created a contemporary flow and added seating at the island for entertaining
  • The pantry wall opposite at the end of the island also allows room for a message center near both the front door and garage entry
  • A gray opaque stain was selected for the frame-less cabinetry and a slab door-style with long stainless pulls continues the contemporary feel of the new kitchen
  • The inside island has wine storage incorporated. A wall mounted TV also comes in handy wall cooking
  • The new Chimney hood is bridged with a floating shelf that matches the cabinetry
  • A pop of blue in the lighting and glass back splash tile contrast the monochromatic warm gray tones in the Cambria quartz tops and cabinetry

The increased storage space and counter-top really helps this cook to have fun in the fresh new kitchen!
