This kitchen was deserving of a fresh remodel. The vision for the space was to add volume, functionality & beauty. The cabinet layout was altered and transformed the space into a galley kitchen. The upper cabinets were lengthened, allowing the ceiling to be visually raised.
Contemporary Kitchen Opens to Dining Room With Lighted Ceiling
Walls between the kitchen and hallway and the kitchen and dining room were removed, the range was moved and an island was added for family meals. “This family of four was thrilled to have their kitchen open out to the dining area with a large peninsula,” designer Anjie Cho reports.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, the new kitchen is located where the old, small living room previously was. The walls on the first floor have been removed, creating an open modern floor plan with views to both the living room and dining area. Updated kitchen cabinetry, new appliances, a decorative tile backsplash and the elongated central island make the new kitchen the center of life on the first floor. Finally, new window treatments, colorful pillows and updated recessed and pendant lighting give a modern and fun vibe throughout.
Designer Jennifer Allison shortened the height of the upper cabinets to improve sight lines, extended the peninsula and infused the kitchen with much lighter colors. Thermador appliances, Silestone counters, Houzer sink and Delta Touch-free faucet added to the modern flair.
Black soapstone countertops and muted light blue cabinets make for an unexpectedly sophisticated color combination. A pair of modern black dining chairs continue the color scheme into the breakfast area.
Designer Anjie Cho removed the wall between kitchen and living room and added a peninsula with overhang for seating. The move gave more space to the galley, allowing the kitchen to be wrapped around the seating area for added room next to the table.
This beautiful contemporary kitchen expertly blends the simplicity of wood with a neutral gray countertop and gray backsplash, using utensil canisters to bring a little pop of color to this clean space.
Warm wood cabinets pair with neutral granite countertops for a beautiful, natural look in this contemporary galley kitchen. A mix of recessed lighting, pendant lights and natural light illuminates the open space.
