Cooking is one of the homeowners' favorite shared hobbies, so when they decided to renovate, the kitchen became a priority. Walls were torn down to open up the space to the dining room and living room. Soapstone and marble grace the countertops, two-toned custom cabinetry is installed and Urban Electric pendant lights hang over the expansive island, lending both illumination and style to space.
This cottage kitchen has decided dramatic flair thanks to charcoal gray walls and a coat of black paint on the hardwood floor. The room is a good example of how dark walls can help a small or narrow space feel more intimate.
