The homeowner envisioned a functional and cohesive kitchen that incorporated a large island, additional storage, and preparation space. Removing the wall separating the kitchen and dining room transformed it into a clean, contemporary, update space for this modern couple. The windows were eliminated to maximize storage, countertop, and entertainment space. The rich hand-scrapped Oak Java hardwood floors contrast the medium grey painted cabinets. The white, grey, and steel blue of Cambria Seagrove countertop is the focal point in the room and provides ample seating for family and friends. The iridescent mosaic tile splash blends beautifully with the Summit Grey painted cabinets and the pendant light fixtures and can lighting provide an airy feel to the kitchen. The new layout transformed a dated nonfunctional space into a light and airy kitchen ideal for entertaining family and friends.
