Originally a cramped 9 square feet, this pretty kitchen is now open, bright and so friendly. Designers took out a low soffit and rearranged cabinets to make space for more storage and a large island. They also removed walls in between the kitchen and dining room.
The homeowners were not interested in a white kitchen, but instead wanted something with a little bit of color, so designers brought in custom walnut cabinetry to bring the space to life. Those cabinets were topped with Luche de Luna quartzite counters and a waterfall island in the same stone. Finally, the design was finished with royal blue velvet stools with gold legs that bring out the warmth in the quartzite and complement the Brutalist chandelier.
The friendly and inviting feel of this southern colonial home is seamlessly carried into the kitchen. The rich umber of the ceiling beams, walnut island top, and quarter sawn oak floors combine with details like the bronze lanterns and bridge faucet to create a classic cooking and gathering space that is at once familiar and unique.
Vertical-grain walnut cabinetry pairs elegantly with white walls, stainless steel appliances, a modern kitchen island and the rich hue of the walnut floors. Glass-front kitchen cabinets add to the impression of open space and shows off eye-catching dinnerware and glassware. Lighting under the island creates depth and adds to the elegance, illuminating leather bar chairs.
A dusky, sage backsplash picks up the flecks of green in the dark marble countertops and island, creating a kitchen that feels put together and aesthetically pleasing. Modern walnut cabinets bring a brightness and natural element to the space; stainless steel appliances further establish the contemporary design scheme.
In this light-filled blue-and-white kitchen, a mix of materials helps break up the large expanse of the central island and define its multiple functions. For the prep zone, designer Kathleen Walsh chose Vermont White Quartzite while watershed-finished walnut warms up the breakfast bar area.
Sleek and warm, this midcentury modern eat-in kitchen exemplifies how form and function can meet beautifully. Walnut floors and cabinets enhance the room's uncluttered look and play off the light coming in from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen island is a perfect spot for a quick breakfast, while the dining table seats six for family dinner or entertaining.
A long row of walnut cabinetry acts as an anchoring device for the kitchen in the open-floor living space. Cabinetmaker Shaum Sinawi chose a vertical-grain walnut that pairs elegantly with the rich hue of the walnut floors. A large kitchen island provides more room for seating and food preparation, while sizable sliding glass doors let fresh air and natural light into the breakfast nook.
