This hottest kitchen area renovation is in a dwelling positioned in the Sonoma Valley, surrounded by oak and olive trees, and rolling hills covered in vineyards. If you’ve at any time regarded a check out to the region, I recommend this short article on the very best of Sonoma County.
I preferred this area to echo its environment so the colors have been motivated by the community landscape. I chose darkish wooden cabinets in the identical tone as the oak floors and olive green cupboards to enjoy off the trees that improve all all around.
The hues are abundant and classic, but the room also includes modern touches this sort of as marble glance quartz, black hardware, gold light fixtures, and open up shelving.
This kitchen area is modest, a lot less than 12 toes from refrigerator to window, so I experienced to be intelligent about equipment placement and cabinetry. I required to charm to a large vary of customers with the finishes and excess storage.
Here’s a glimpse at what I started with very last 12 months: dated white cupboards, laminate countertops, an uncomfortable pantry, cumbersome higher cabinets previously mentioned a strange skinny peninsula, outdated carpet and laminate flooring, and not a great deal of storage.
The footprint of the kitchen stayed the similar, but I manufactured wise modifications. I produced the peninsula deeper with cabinetry and moved the microwave there far too. I stored higher cabinets but changed two of them with glass fronts.
I selected a chimney hood in the very same wooden tone for a cohesive appear. I contemplated a drywall selection hood which is trending in kitchen style and design, but selected to stick with a more compact scale stained angled hood to distinction with the white tile.
I absolutely essential to move that pantry so I built the tall cabinets in the eating area to choose its location. I assumed the upcoming operator could profit from much more storage so I extended decrease cupboards into the dining place as nicely.
First, some kitchen aspects. I utilized elongated matte black hardware on the drawers and doorways, see source checklist under. I also included a modest rail with hooks underneath the upper cabinets for added utility.
The matte black faucet is modern and sleek, set up in excess of the single basin granite composite sink.
The tile is a textured 3×8” glazed ceramic in white in a vertical stacked offset pattern from counter to ceiling. I have been wanting to put in this pattern for a year and I enjoy it in this area. White tile is timeless nonetheless the set up feels fresh new.
The counter tops are 3cm calacatta quartz with gray veining mounted on equally the encompass cupboards and the peninsula.
When selecting cupboard colours, the finish on appliances is generally a thought, they need to complement each individual other. Stainless, white, and black look excellent, but I went out on a limb with this job and selected slate appliances in its place. They mix wonderfully with the wooden stain and olive coloration in the cabinetry.
I was going for walks via House Depot glancing at possibilities when I spied the GE Slate series and considered if I’m deciding on darkish tone cabinets, these will function truly well. The complete on these appliances is matte and feels muted and blended as if they are receding as a substitute of seeking to consider the highlight.
The cupboards are a combine of stained and painted in the kitchen area, and all stain all through in the dining space. I like how the floating cabinets tie the two spaces jointly.
Here’s yet another before and after!
And just one more…
A extraordinary difference, appropriate?
My upcoming kitchen rework usually takes me to Florida to acquire on a thoroughly various design. I’m excited!
