A Contemporary Twist on a Charming Suburban Family Home

With two growing young boys, this couple needed a space that the family could grow into, without changing the footprint of the original kitchen. The must haves were a coffee bar for those busy school mornings, and a homework station for kids. To create ample storage space, we optimized as much room as we could by installing floor to ceiling cabinetry.

Door Styles Used:
Shaker & Odyssey

Gray Cloud Shaker

A must have for a busy couple is to place the kitchen sink in front of a window. This helps bring light and life to the less than thrilling chore of doing the dishes.

Traditional Transitional

This is an example of a classic transitional design. The drawer features our Odyssey slab door while the cabinet beneath boasts the sought after shaker style door.

Dual Functionality

In the AM, this is the best place to make your perfect cup of jo. But by integrating a small sink, it can transform this coffee bar into the perfect wet bar for entertaining friends and families.

Floating Vanity

The perfect way to integrate light into a small power room; add lighting beneath the cabinetry for a subtle, yet bright touch on a relatively small and dim space.

Matte Finishes

The perimeter of this kitchen is lined with a shaker style door pained with a matte paint by Benjamin Moore called Grey Cloud.

Matte Blacks

We opted for a matte black ladder style handle to add some contrast against the cloud grey painted doors. It also adds a contemporary flair on a more traditional cabinet door.

Built-In Coffee Bar

On of the items on our client's "must have" list was a coffee station. This small, yet functional space is a great way to keep appliances off the main countertops.

Homework Station

We created a custom desk/work space to make sure that there was integrated area in their kitchen for their two young boys to do their homework.
