Black and White
White in the Kitchen
What could be more streamlined and uncluttered than white with black accents? White is a great color for kitchens, since it feels clean and fresh – and in this case, timeless, like this home.
White cabinetry creates a clean palette while elegant, matte black hardware. The black granite island is gently curved to allow for comfortable seating. Because this family has young children, everything in the house needs to be functional and durable.
The sturdy, easy-to-clean stools have a metal base and recycled wood seats, so that each one is different. That’s all about character – just like this home – and they complement the beautiful refinished oak flooring.
Bubbled glass bases, a unique rug, a custom range hood and stainless steel appliances complete the look. The lesson here is to start with order and simplicity. Include plenty of room to store food and kitchenware out of sight, with touches like the flush mount drawers and corner space.
