Kitchen Design and Remodel – Coastal classic meets contemporary character for this kitchen design and remodeling project. This coastal-inspired kitchen design, delicately blends classic and contemporary styles, creating a setting where every day feels like a vacation.
A sea-inspired color scheme of robin’s egg blue, warm white, and splashes of contemporary sheen update the look of this classic coastal kitchen design and remodel. Shaker-style cabinetry and beaded-board panels on the kitchen island, blend perfectly into the relaxed setting. The U-shape floor plan is modest in size, making it efficient and comfortably intimate.
A large marble-top island provides plentiful workspace and comfortable seating in the center of the kitchen. The blue island base, provides a bright contrast to the crisp white kitchen cabinetry. Metallic finishes tie together several elements in this kitchen design, such as the stools, sink faucet, cabinetry, hardware and refrigerator.
Grooves on the apron-front farmhouse sink, echo the lines of the blue beaded-board cabinets, creating gorgeous, unexpected texture. The island’s farmhouse sink is teamed with a vintage-style bridge faucet and flanked by two pairs of dishwasher drawers.
This kitchen design and remodel has stylish and functional food storage. The kitchen presents a delicate balance between traditional and contemporary design aesthetics. A sleek, stainless-steel refrigerator with a glass-panel door serves up style and efficiency. A walk-in pantry boosts the storage capacity of the modest-size kitchen.
The kitchen backsplash also gracefully ties the line between traditional and contemporary. Thin glass tiles placed in a classic subway pattern have an almost ethereal look. Dark grout lines provide contrast and highlight the white subway tile backsplash of this kitchen remodel.
Repeating the kitchen island color in small accents around the perimeter, creates a pleasing balance between contrast and continuity. Blue-painted display shelves that match the kitchen island, add additional color to the all-white kitchen and provide a place for collectables. Frosted-glass doors on the top tier of the cabinetry keep with the openness of the kitchen design, while discreetly obscuring the contents.
Appliances supply much of the kitchen’s contemporary style. The professional-grade range and hood feature swaths of stainless steel, but the oven doors and range knobs are white, a striking look that softens the appliances and helps them blend in with the cabinetry and countertops in this kitchen design and remodeling project.
The modest-size kitchen design opens to a large living and dining area that can accommodate sizeable gatherings. An open floor plan keeps the kitchen feeling bright despite a lack of exterior windows. Natural light pours in from the combined living and dining space, which boasts multiple sets of French doors that open to a deck. When daylight fades, recessed ceiling lights and two big island pendants illuminate the kitchen.
