Understated Elegance

"There is not one thing I would change [in the kitchen]. It turned out with the exact look and feel that I wanted in my kitchen - I love it." - Homeowner

The small size of this Bethesda kitchen posed both a layout and storage challenge. The homeowner, an avid cook, needed a practical space for both cooking and entertaining. Adding a small pantry and microwave peninsula increased storage space and contributed additional counter space at the same time. The warm white color of the cabinetry and tile make the space feel open and inviting. The subway tile backsplash was designed in proportion with the kitchen, and adds interest to the under counter areas. Details such as a simple cove crown, double paneled wall cabinets, and exposed hinges add an understated sophistication to the room.
