A long wall, that had separated the kitchen from the living space, was removed as well, creating the opportunity to add a large island that helps define the space. Corbels on either side of the columns adds an architectural touch that mimics that on the outdoor columns, and helps further delineate the space.
Pull up a high-back leather barstool to the white, marble island in this this modern, geometric kitchen. The small space features grand designs as seen from the countertop-to-ceiling patterned tile backsplash to the gray cabinetry and herringbone-patterned wooden pantry drawer.

Designers wanted the kitchen to be both elegant and functional, so they continued the modern look into this space. Clean lines and sharp edges keep the room looking clean and neat, while the blue-gray tile and rich hardwood floor make the space warm and inviting. To accommodate the homeowners' everyday as well as entertaining needs, designers included plenty of prep and storage space with counters and cabinets on two walls of the space and a large kitchen island with an eat in option. To add to the elegance of the space, designers added stainless steel appliances and stainless steel pendant lights, giving the room a little extra sparkle that highlights the natural light that comes in through the door and windows.

This open concept kitchen, dining and living space allows for inclusive cooking and dining thanks to a cozy banquette nestled into one corner.

Modern Kitchen With Colorful Reclaimed Wood Island
To give a California ranch-style home a fresh, modern twist, designer Kristianne Watts used a mix of materials in the kitchen. “On the island we used reclaimed boat wood from Indonesia. With the original paint still on each plank, it brings an authentic feel to the space,” she says. “The raised bar is Portland cement, which can be broken and recycled. The countertops are a quartz from Silestone/Cosentino. The custom cabinetry on the perimeter is an environmentally friendly wood veneer, FSC-certified Shinnoki pre-finished wood panels in Midnight Ash.”
A contemporary waterfall edge on the island is crisp and clean, setting the tone for this modern, yet homey space. Slatted wood pendants provide task lighting and complement the warm wood tones of the cabinetry. Bold blue barstools provide an accent color that's repeated throughout the open plan living area.
Triangular, white tiles create a modern geometric pattern in the backsplash of this contemporary kitchen. The gray-colored cabinets above the marble countertop and white cabinets below feature golden pull handles, as does the herringbone patterned, wooden pantry door.
