Spring Lake-Kitchen

We expanded a formerly dark, small, outdated kitchen and made it open, bright and airy. The glass doors and open plate rack of the kitchen cabinets add depth, color and geometry to the room. The door knobs and cabinet hardware are round simple forms, a detail that echoes the round table and art form shapes on the walls.

It looks great - it's about the same amount of room we have and I wondered if a table of that size would seem too small, but it doesn't. If you have the measurements for the banquette area, I would love those too. Thank you kindly.

The cabinets have a furniture finish, they are not shiny.

Thank you so much for your kind words. The cabinets are wood. I do not recall the brand of this refrigerator, this project was completed in 2007. I just specified a Kitchen Aid refrigerator just like this one that is counter depth and seems to be nicely priced. I would suggest that you consider classic and simple furnishings for your update. I think this project is still as fresh and timeless as the day it was completed even though it's 5 years old. I'm very proud of the transformation and my client is enjoying her beach retreat very much.

Really like the brightness of the kitchen...what is the paint color on the walls and name of the granite?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Sheila Rich Interiors, LLC
Thank you. The paint is Benjamin Moore, decorator white- 01, matte on the walls, semi gloss on the trim. The granite is toated almond. Good luck with your project.

I love using different colors for kitchen dinnerware. It always makes a great looking table. These plates belong to my client. Try looking in Bloomingdale's . Fiestaware is another company that has so many bright colors and it's a really good product.
Good luck

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: The kitchen is now airy and light, contemporary yet beachy. Rich choose this granite for the counters and the kitchen table because it has a "sand-like rhythm," she says, and continued it up the walls instead of breaking up the look with a tile backsplash. Light finishes and glass upper cabinet doors bounce the light around.Simple round knobs and pulls and stainless steel appliances add some sleek urban style. Rich's client needed to be able to work from home, so the desk on the left gets lots of use.

Granite with 'sand flow' is perfect for 238. Like the continuity throughout the cottage with the same flooring throughout; also, use the same wall color but make the trim a semi-gloss for tonal differentiation. this cottage says "BEACH" without being themey.
