Stunning Kitchen With White Cabinetry & Dark Hardwood Flooring
While compact, the impact of this kitchen is big. Keeping a neutral and white color scheme makes the space live larger than it actually is by creating a clean palette and lines. The paneled refrigerator allows the appliance to blend into the cabinetry and not distract from the design. Unique elements include the custom, architectural range hood and Carrera marble tile backsplash.
The kitchen of this charming Jamestown, Rhode Island, cottage was once dim and closed off, with a narrow window. Post-renovation, it's light, bright and open, with integrated appliances, a petite island and crisp white cabinetry that extends to the ceiling for maximum storage. Hardwood flooring adds to the charm.
