Stainless steel frames in the upper display cabinets are a unique element that tie in with the stainless steel appliances in this contemporary kitchen. Dark hardwood floors create contrast against white cabinets and crystal light pendents add a glamorous touch over the minimalistic island.
A bright white kitchen with a white subway tile backsplash, white cabinets, and matching white ceiling and crown molding looks sparkling clean and makes the dark hardwood floor pop. An opening in the lower cabinets for the microwave is the perfect way to free up counter space.
This transitional kitchen is an elegant place to entertain with its neutral color palette and design details, like the intricate chandelier and metallic pendant lights. The gorgeous dark hardwood flooring provides contrast against the white cabinetry and sets the stage for colorful accessories to pop.
Joining the dining room and kitchen instead of keeping them separate spaces with a wall in between lets light flood into both areas. Also, the overall mood becomes more friendly and approachable with easy communion between chef and diners.
The master bedroom is given a fresh and classic look as well, with the old blue wall-to-wall carpet removed, revealing hardwood floors, and the room furnished with period-appropriate furniture and accessories.
Hardwood floors work with almost any style — year in, year out. Given that flooring is the biggest expanse of product you’ll see in your new space, designer Christina Fluegge of Greige Design recommends going with a high-quality hardwood that allows you to refinish as time goes by rather than having to replace. “I currently have a love affair with a sandable engineered wood floor that’s hand-distressed and has a wax finish,” Fluegge says. “It’s simple to clean and takes scratches and regular everyday living in stride.”
As seen on Home Town, the Trest residence has been fully renovated by hosts Ben and Erin Napier. After renovations, the kitchen and dining area features new furniture, cabinetry, and window treatments. A large decorative range hood was added as a featured element in the kitchen as well. Seating at the dining table and island make this house ready for hosting.
