Soothing White and Gray Kitchen Remodel

This transitional kitchen designed by Normandy Designer Stephanie Bryant has some of the clean lines of contemporary styles, and is blended with accents of traditional styles, such as mouldings and corbels. The chunky countertop on the island offsets some of the finer details and helps land this kitchen in the transitional style.

You are correct, this is a 36" range shown in this kitchen. The windows are approximately 27" wide, including the window trim. I hope this is helpful information for you, and glad you like the kitchen!

Thanks so much for the compliment, glad you like the kitchen! In terms of countertops, this kitchen had a marble island and a solid surface perimeter. One of the primary reasons for this selection is because that marble is more vulnerable to stains and scratches so it can be risky to use it in a "high traffic" area of the kitchen. Placing the marble on the island only means that the less vulnerable solid surfaces can be the primary work surfaces for daily tasks without as much risk to the countertop. The softness (or porousness) of marble is one reason why many people familiar with natural stones will recommend that you select a granite because it is much harder and less likely to stain or scratch. For homeowners who just love the look or marble, limiting it to just on area of the kitchen, like you see here, can be a good compromise. I've attached a few images of other kitchens we've done with a white perimeter and a dark stained island, and most of them do have a single tone of countertop. There's no clear formula for when you should or shouldn't introduce another variable into a design (like two different countertops) but in general larger kitchens do afford the opportunity to get more creative with options, simply because their size permits them to do so. I hope this has been helpful!

Thank You! I chose a quartzite called "Sea Pearl". It has similar look to marble and also a calming look to it..and because of my kitchen dimentions i have decided to put it everywhere! I appreciate your time! Love your designs!

I just spoke with the designer for this project, Stephanie Bryant, and she did have some recommendations for you. Stephanie advises: "The fixture over the island should also be geometric in shape, but not round. Pendant lights with cone shape shades, staggered, would look quite nice. You could also pull in the bronze and possibly amber glass for the shades." Good luck in your search and hope you find some wonderful light fixtures for your island!

The cabinetry company calls this color "snow white" but you can likely find similar options with nearly any cabinet company.

It is a Carrara Bianco Herringbone "picture frame" edged with a chair rail. It looks excellent. We did the very same thing for a shower on the DIY Network TV show "I hate my Bath". Our Carrara Bianco 1x2" Herringbone Mosaic Tile is $11.45 a square foot:

Then surrounding it is a 3x6" subway Tile our is $7.50SF:

It all looks to be honed.

What is the countertop material (both perimeter and island)? - Thank you.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Walker Zanger
robyn60091- The island looks most like a Carrara slab material (Walker Zanger calls it White Venatino) and this slab looks to be a 5CM thickness or a very nice job of a laminated edge. The backsplash also looks to be made up of Carrara tiles and mosaics. My apologies, can't really see the perimeter but it looks like it could be a nice gray honed limestone. Walker Zanger can definitely provide you with materials that are close to or match these items. Let me know if you're interested in finding the location closest to you.
Thank you!
