Broken cabinets, missing hardware, and a bathroom in the kitchen! A 1980s style and function disaster for sure. Now we needed to add a home office and a dedicated area for the rulers of the house - puppy dogs Margo and Millie.
Creating a blend of traditional and contemporary style, the new kitchen feels larger and functional, with clearly defined zones and lots of space for cooking and entertaining. After lengthy discussions with the homeowner, I decided to completely re-do the space. At one end - I added a set of French doors for better traffic flow. For the room?s centerpiece, I designed a high-style island, perfect for entertaining. This huge addition includes double sinks, a dishwasher and recycling center. The quartz countertop extends out on one side for relaxed bar-chair seating. For the floors I chose large travertine tiles in a light-reflecting cream color.
The kitchen now combines both traditional and contemporary styles, which perfectly suits the homeowners personal taste while maintaining the overall character of the house. Perimeter walls now have creamy recessed-panel cabinets with an antique finish. Mushroom-color quartz countertops and brown marble backsplash tiles help balance the cabinetry and floor tiles.
