The kitchen was made wide enough to accommodate two cooks and passers-through. Period-authentic light fixtures and fir flooring, to match the original flooring, were chosen to make the addition blend seamlessly with the original house.
The ultra sleek red kitchen forms the center of this urban home and serves as the place where everyone gathers. Stainless steel is used throughout the space from the range hood to the waterfall countertop, while a contemporary fireplace adds warmth to the space.
Sleek and spare but with warm brown accents, this modern kitchen is a design masterpiece. The wood paneled cabinets hide clever storage solutions such as pull-out spice racks and deep drawers for pots and pans.
This kitchen sink has a view of the distinct built-in living room shelving. An open wood bar counter connects the two spaces and adds visual interest to this vignette. Yellow and red patterned backsplash adds a pop of color to this otherwise neutral space, connecting it to the red wall and rich wood shelving in the living room. An intricate detailed entertainment center filled with interesting wood and earthy accessories provides the focal point for the living space and the view from the kitchen sink.
Contemporary Open Kitchen Features Bright Red Cabinets
To reflect the openness of the home, no upper cabinets were used in the kitchen. Bright red cabinets are paired with sleek stainless steel countertops, while built-in cabinets around the room offer much-needed storage.
