This remodel project was all about taking an outdated space and making it feel fresh & functional for the modern family. The cabinetry played a major role in creating an upscale, modern/traditional design. We kept it classic with the warm white tone, Farrow & Ball’s “Wimborne White” which pairs beautifully with the wood accents on the back of the island and the floating shelves. The shaker doors give some interest and a more traditional craftsman feel, while maintaining an overall fresh, modern aesthetic when paired with the brushed brass minimalist handles. The trim work you can see at the top of cabinets is another thoughtful detail which perfectly balances the modern/traditional elements. The huge 12 ft island is a great place for gathering and also keeps a perfectly symmetrical look with the hidden dishwasher (disguised behind a beautiful cabinet/drawer panel) and hidden pull-out garbage cans as well. Having an island that looks to be entirely cabinetry allowed us to achieve the traditional, timeless look we were after and also the clean, minimalist feel through the balance & symmetry.
The pantry space is ultra functional and also ultra beautiful with a mix of open and closed storage solutions. The drawers are a great option for maximizing space and providing a clean, simplified look. It’s an awesome extension of the kitchen space that works well for meal prep & additional storage.
The laundry room is another favorite with the unique gray green color– Farrow & Ball “Pigeon”. Built-in desks are a great way to perfectly utilize the space here and we packed in lots of storage with upper cabinetry and open shelves as well. Mutli-function rooms are very popular because they’re more useful on a daily basis. This laundry space is ultimately like a mudroom, craft room/office AND laundry room all in one! A great place for getting homework done too since it’s right off the kitchen! The brushed brass handles are the perfect finishing touch for these beautiful shaker doors as well!
In the family room area the simple wood floating shelves add great detail and a customized feel. They tie in with the back of the kitchen island and also the open pantry shelves to give the space balance & warmth. The outcome is a refined, timeless space that offers all the great modern features through custom cabinetry & cohesive design! It feels like a brand new home and our clients are loving every detail!
