In the laundry room, designers wanted to keep the space light and bright, so they added all white fixtures, white, shiplap walls and white floors. To warm the space, they had butcher block countertops installed which, along with black accent pieces, gives the white space a little contrast.
Durable quartz countertops grace both the kitchen perimeter and the twin islands, creating practical and abundant work spaces for multiple users. A local woodworker created an original butcher block pedestal from a fallen local tree, with a removable chopping block set into it.
This creates a functional and beautiful detail at the end of the kitchen space - and truly celebrates Lauren Levant’s innovative approach to designing a healthy, environmentally-friendly Craftsman kitchen design.
When updating a historic home in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles, Sabine Klingler Kane designed the kitchen around her clients’ butcher-block island. “My client had the island long before we started the remodel,” she says. “It looks perfectly vintage, but it is actually a reproduction made from reclaimed wood. It is ideal for their young daughter as she does not need to be careful with her crayons and spilling food. It has drawers on both sides, and wine storage underneath as well as shelves for cook books. But the best thing is: Two compartments on top have been outfitted with electrical outlets to plug in tablets, laptops, phones and small appliances. It also has towel bars and a bottle opener attached to it — it is not only great looking, but also totally practical and functional.”
Unified cabinetry integrates appliances into this petite kitchen, making the small room feel bigger than it is. The countertop extends well beyond the island's base to make an eating bar and the colorful painting infuses the space with warmth.
An array of cabinets offers plenty of storage in this white transitional kitchen, while an island provides extra elbowroom around the prep sink. The island's butcher-block countertop adds great prep space to this open concept kitchen/living room.
This gorgeous kitchen island with a custom rolling butcher block creates contrast between the white floors. Outfitted with an '80s-inspired black quartz and wooden combo, the minimal pattern stands out without clashing with the rest of the kitchen.
