Contemporary Budget Kitchen

This mid century modern home was beginning to resemble more of a “shabby chic” personality than the vibrant retro vision the homeowners desired. The budget was not large and we had to be creative in the approach to solving some of this kitchen’s style challenges. The client wanted a sleek modern look. Ok, that was half of the client! The other half, the wife, preferred more a kitschy colorful palette. To get the kitchen to harmonize as well as the two clients, ( after I informed them I charge extra for marital counseling!) we melded sleek lines with a colorful backdrop on the walls. The darker stained walnut cabinets were chosen to counterbalance the intensity of the eggplant wall paint. We chose blizzard ceasarstone to provide a stark contrast to the dark cabinets and coordinated the backsplash with an iridescent white porcelain cut into large squares. Instead of a stainless “table” for the electric cooktop, we opted for a less expensive laminated metal material to fabricate the legs of the cooking island. The opposite side houses the refrigerator, oven/microwave and two pantries. One a good sized pantry with pullouts and the other a shallower pantry that is home to food and overflow dishware. The glass in the doors mirrors the cubist glass in the front door and the handles are classically retro in design. All in all, this small kitchen has a powerful presence and the clients are happily cooking in harmony!

The distinctive handles make it look like a Whirlpool, here's an example:

How did you make the fridge look built in? Did you extend the cabinets out? I notice the depth of the fridge is 33" but doesn't look like it sticks out much here. TIA

A high end refrigerator can cost anywhere from 2-4 thousand dollars. Although they save you lots on energy bills because new fridges are made to be more energy efficient. The features you can have are limitless, such as double doors, coolers, ice makers, variety of shelves and built in freezers.
