A Modern Miami Home modern-kitchen

A Modern Miami Home

A young Mexican couple approached us to create a streamline modern and fresh home for their growing family. They expressed a desire for natural textures and finishes such as natural stone and a variety of woods to juxtapose against a clean linear white backdrop.

For the kid’s rooms we are staying within the modern and fresh feel of the house while bringing in pops of bright color such as lime green. We are looking to incorporate interactive features such as a chalkboard wall and fun unique kid size furniture.

The bathrooms are very linear and play with the concept of planes in the use of materials.They will be a study in contrasting and complementary textures established with tiles from resin inlaid with pebbles to a long porcelain tile that resembles wood grain.

This beautiful house is a 5 bedroom home located in Presidential Estates in Aventura, FL.

Outlets on backsplash - Hello! I am hoping you're able to lend some advice. I just had a back painted backsplash installed in our kitchen - but the cuts around the outlet are not hidden when the faceplate goes on. Did you also have the same issue? By looking at the pictures your outlets seem nice and flush. Were the outlets built out? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! :)

Do you have a picture of the cabinet sides? Are they also glass or painted wood to match color?

This looks like a custom back painted aluminum frame glass door. With a custom color match, you can essentially have any color to accent your kitchen environment. We have 2 different full glass front door styles: one has a thin aluminum frame on the edge only and the other has a full glass overlay so that the aluminum is not visible at all from the front of the doors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The kitchen used to end where the first group of cabinets ends, and the breakfast room had a big wall unit blocking the windows. A pop of green is provided by the Panton chairs and plays off the vibrant foliage seen in the backyard. "We designed the house to bring in as much of the outdoors as possible, from enlarging windows and bringing in plants," explains Donadel.The cabinets continue the theme of mixing natural textures, in this case walnut and glass, and the backsplash is white back-painted glass. "The pendant lamps were the very first thing my client and I picked out on our first shopping trip together," says Donadel. "We didn't know where we were going to use them, but we knew we had to have them."Kitchen crafted by Mia Cucina; Bertoia counter stools: Knoll; Saarinen kitchen table: Knoll; Panton kitchen chairs: Vitra
8. Painted glass-front cabinets. These cabinet doors are frameless, and the glass has been painted on the back side to maintain a wonderful glossy finish. This particular application is referred to as a factory finish. Heavy-duty epoxy paint is uniformly applied to the reverse side of the glass in a controlled environment to prevent imperfections. The end result is a perfect finish, seen through the other side of the glass.More: Houzz guides on choosing kitchen cabinets
