The following kitchen is a spectacular portrayal of a functional space and encompasses a variety of popular design trends. The kitchen perimeter cabinets are maple and the color is Oyster. The island and great room cabinets are also maple and the color is Smokey Hills with Onyx Glaze. The Omega cabinets, hardware, and under cabinet lighting were supplied and installed by the Parr Cabinet Design Center.
Collectively, we are breaking the mold and finding new, innovative solutions for our homes. Many homeowners are rearranging their kitchen layouts to fit daily needs and focusing on performance first, style second. For this remodel, our design team placed an emphasis on a functional stove area and relocating the microwave and oven. A classic range cover and cabinetry was installed adding sophistication and elegance.
Just as we continue to evolve, so do our kitchens. Not only are they the most trafficked room of the house, they continue to be the main gathering space, one which we naturally gravitate to. Tearing down the walls of enclosed kitchens creates an open floor plan that compliments the lifestyle of today’s families. When we shift away from compartmentalized kitchens, we can enjoy the flow of natural light and a sense of openness.
By installing a highly functional kitchen island with a waterfall countertop, you develop a welcoming, family-friendly space. Homeowners are steering away from the traditional formal dining area and placing a higher emphasis on a multi-purpose kitchen island. Complete with a second sink, extended shelf, and ample storage space, this kitchen island is as practical as it is stunning.
The installation of glass cabinet doors was encouraged by our cabinet design team. With the help of spotlights, the eye moves upward making the space feel bigger. This small, yet delightful addition transforms what would be wasted space into the ideal place to display your grandmother’s china or other precious items.
Under cabinet lighting has become increasingly popular and is a fantastic option. This extra touch creates ambiance while providing additional task lighting for meal preparation and reading cookbooks.
As we transition from the kitchen to the great room, so does the choice of cabinetry. To create cohesiveness and form one large space, our design team used the same color of the kitchen island for the built-ins. The addition of dark cabinetry compliments the ornate fireplace, creating a cozy atmosphere. Accent lights frame the edges, an exceptional detail.
