Kitchen 10: by Starlite Kitchens

“Warm” and “inviting” are two words this homeowner used to describe the desired feel of her new kitchen. A formerly dark space that felt more confined, this kitchen was transformed with cabinetry and trims reaching to the ceiling, visually expanding the height of the room without adding any square feet. The use of ivory painted cabinets on the perimeter and a cherry flavored island tie the room together with adjacent rooms and materials including existing cherry flooring throughout the main level.

Lighting the upper cabinets also helps add ambiance and supplements the new lighting plan, helping to brighten this room that suffers from northern exposure and no direct natural sunlight. Rich paint colors and the incorporation of a delightful backsplash inset give just the right amount of detail, along with fantastic lighting fixtures and beautiful Cambria countertops that pull it all together. ‘Warm and inviting’ was certainly accomplished in this design.
