A kitchen that matched her personality. This beautiful old home in Shorewood had a basic white kitchen but the homeowners wanted to open the kitchen to their family room and update the look to match their personality and style. We created an arched opening to the kitchen that followed the arch of the barrel vault ceiling in the family room. When opening up the kitchen we discovered that we could raise the ceiling height to match the rest of the home which visually lifted weight from the kitchen.
We opened up a broom closet to create a small mudroom area by the back stairs. Grey stained oak cabinets and matte white Cambria Weybourne countertops with a waterfall edge beautifully contrast each other. To bring in color, we used colors from the rest of the house and created a custom colored cement backsplash tile handmade in Vietnam. We even included access to the laundry chute through a tall cabinet.
