The Humble Beginnings: A traditional kitchen and desk within the kitchen space that served little purpose.
The Dream: More storage with a lighter look and feel for this oceanfront home that entertains.
We started with white cabinetry against the walls and lots of organizational built-in items to make this family compound a better place to enjoy each other. We used full-access cabinetry, which adds not only 10% or more of useable space, but also a transitional flair.
Further, we took the cabinetry to the ceiling with lighted glass cabinets to display those mementos from days long gone. The island is a blue-green color to emulate the view of the ocean, and the Cambria Pra Sands color is a fabulous match to the island cabinetry.
We made this a piece of furniture with the additional trim while keeping it simple enough to keep the transitional vibe. Large slabs of quartz quickly become the focus when you enter a room, so we wanted to make sure this slab had panache’.
Sometimes you just need to take a leap of faith and add the color the kitchen deserves.
