‘80s Kitchen Conversion

The old kitchen was a relic of the ‘80s craze of angled peninsulas and pickled oak cabinets.

This client knew what she wanted: find a way to create a large island for entertaining and family dinners, and to move away from all the white kitchens out there.

In this sunny space we chose high end, contemporary walnut cabinets. The clients had moved from a home with a walk in pantry, so storage was important. Behind the new island is a wall of cabinets that open up to lots of dry goods and appliance storage. Coordinating with the warm cabinets we chose some contrast: Natural stone “Luna” Quartzite. The backsplash is marble penny rounds in shades of gray and brown that really highlight the cabinets and the counter. Turning the cabinets around an outside corner created a Bar Nook complete with an under counter beverage fridge. A big splurge was the butcher block at the end of the island which makes it so convenient for the chefs to turn around and work at their cooktop. Appliances are from Jennair.
