Mid Century Modern Kitchen

This remodel of a mid century modern home was focused on improving the flow and functionality of the kitchen while respecting the existing design style. We removed the wall separating the living area from the kitchen and installed recycled chalkboard countertops on some great new cabinets by Kerf design. New aluminum windows added much needed cross ventilation while complementing the existing architecture. New appliances, lighting and flooring rounded out the remodel.

Do you like your Ventahood? Have you had any issues with it? We're remodeling and trying to decide. They're quite a bit more expensive than the Broan we were looking at. But, it sounds like the noise is much better with the Ventahood.

The slate was approximately 1/2" thick. We butted the seams together and glued them. Because it was a chalkboard and not a honed piece of stone, there are some variations in the seam. You could glue a piece to the edge but I would be hesitant about its long term performance without some kind of mechanical fastener.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: One of the team's major difficulties was figuring out the height location for the cabinetry over the counter. It needed to be low enough to be accessible, but if too low would block the view into the kitchen. In the end, they put little-used and display items in this cabinet and left it up high to fully open up the space. Dishwasher: Bosch; range: Bluestar 36-inch; hood: Vent-A-Hood; dining table: owner'sPhotos courtesy of Kerf Design
