Lucie Ayres' client asked to have a pantry, laundry room AND a desk in a small nook of the kitchen. She made it happen mainly by opening the walls between the former laundry room and kitchen and by installing space-saving retractable doors.
This traditional kitchen showcases white cabinets, neutral floor tile and stainless steel appliances, with an infusion of color from blue pendant lights, paint trim and a pop of red from a fruit arrangement.
Painting only the bottom cabinets blue provides a grounding element in this kitchen while also keeping the overall mood light and airy. Personality comes from unexpected touches like the vintage stove and colorful rug.
As seen on Home Town, the Walker's Laurel, MS existing kitchen was dark and outdated with wood paneling on all the walls, old metal cabinets, and a refrigerator stuck in the opposite corner from the kitchen. After the renovations, their Laurel, MS kitchen now features new hardwood floors, a complete redesign of the kitchen with bright walls, new cabinets, concrete countertops, a large island for entertaining, a new tile backsplash and bright colors to help the room stand out.
A vintage stove with a flip-up top is full of old-fashioned charm. White walls and counters become a blank canvas on which to layer bright colors and textures like the subway tiles, even the wooden spoons!
Transitional Kitchen Pairs White Cabinets, Blue Backsplash
White and blue are a classic combination, and they work wonders in this transitional kitchen. The light blue backsplash not only brings out the white of the cabinets, but also serves as a pleasant pop of color.
The all-white perimeter of the kitchen is contrasted with golden accents (drawer and cabinet pulls and other details) and the island's slate blue cabinets. The combination of colors is warm and welcoming.
