White kitchen

This kitchen was oak and ugly when we moved in , after lots of added detail it is transformed into a classic white kitchen , we clad the bulkhead with beadboard and trim , added brackets and a trim valance, as well as a custom range hood .

What Houzz contributors are saying:

By painting the soffit above the upper cabinets the same color as the cabinets themselves, you create the illusion of taller upper cabinets. Nothing like a little creative design wizardry to make you feel happier in your kitchen!
