A popular design trend today is one that combines the sensitivity of the “Shaker Styling” with the “Arts and Crafts” details. This dream kitchen tells a story of a classy transitional, functional kitchen that truly is the hub the home. Featuring a large island, with room for seating, a desk area and the ample counter top space, this kitchen is not only a entertainer’s dream come true, it is the family’s “ground central”. a place where everyone can come together after a long day and share their stories.
The dark island is a nice contrast to the white perimeter cabinetry. It also is dark enough that it does not compete with the wood floor. The door style, although shaker, is not a true shaker in one sense because of it’s slight inside detail that gives it just a little bit of detail without taking away from the complete look of the cabinetry.
One of the things that I particularly like about this kitchen is the thick posts in between cabinets and the false doors that are on all exposed ends give the kitchen a much more sophisticated look. The detailing in this design goes beyond the functionality of the cabinets and the appliances. The subtle details in this kitchen is what makes it unique and one of a kind.
The stainless steel appliances complement the cabinetry with their matching cup handles and the 3cm thick solid granite really makes the kitchen pop. The solid subtle backsplash doesn’t clash with the natural beauty of the granite, yet the distinct pattern gives it interest all on it’s own.
