Dark Beauty Kitchen
This home, built in the 90s, included a kitchen that had seen better days, with light-colored cabinets, dated countertops, and an awkward layout. The high ceiling added to the challenge, making the space feel overwhelming and poorly lit. The revamped kitchen is now divided into three distinct areas: a streamlined work triangle, a dedicated coffee bar, and a spacious island seating area for socializing. The large island boasts ample storage, a cooktop with a pop-up vent, and plenty of seating.
One of the key challenges was blending the homeowner’s desire for a traditional wood feel with a modern look. This was achieved by using cherry wood stained in Peppercorn for the cabinets, combined with ShowplaceEVO frameless cabinets and Edgewater doors for a contemporary touch.
Additional enhancements include faux beams, raised ceiling height, and a thoughtfully designed corner pantry. Two different tile styles and colors for the backsplash and two countertop materials, Cambria Bentley “black” for the island and Cambria Mersey “white” for the perimeter, complete the transformation.
The result is a kitchen that perfectly combines style and functionality, meeting the homeowner’s diverse tastes and lifestyle.
