The kitchen forms the heart of the apartment, offering ample seating, a large countertop surface, bright lighting and an open format. The kitchen was completely reconfigured from the original layout: walls were knocked down, cabinets were relocated and new ones custom-made, and state-of-the-art appliances were installed. Everything was kept white and glossy to maximize natural and artificial light.
This simple kitchen space is both stylish and functional without distracting from the natural beauty of its surroundings. The open concept plan makes this space perfect for entertaining, allowing someone to be in the kitchen and still remain a part of the conversation. The wide galley style kitchen provides plenty of counter space for preparation, while the bar stools and the large kitchen table provide plenty of seating for entertaining. The neutral colors and large windows in this space allow tons of natural light in, making this home warm and inviting while reflecting the serenity of the beach that surrounds this home.
Modern Neutral, White and Black Kitchen with Kitchen Island and Light Hardwood Floors
Black cabinets can add to visually compress the size of a space -- but not as used here. Since white cabinets are used on top, there's a balance of light and dark. Lovely windows and pale wood floors also add to the sense of brightness in the space.
A long wall, that had separated the kitchen from the living space, was removed as well, creating the opportunity to add a large island that helps define the space. Corbels on either side of the columns adds an architectural touch that mimics that on the outdoor columns, and helps further delineate the space.
