Contemporary Colorful Kitchen

A mid-century rambler in Seattle was in need of a major kitchen remodel. By removing a wall between the dining room and kitchen, and installing colorful Kerf cabinets, both rooms bloom with color, and benefit from functional, modern materials. The countertop is Paperstone and new Pella windows bring lots of light in.
