An Elegantly Functional Kitchen in Durham

Transitional Kitchen, Raleigh

Maximizing the functionality of this space, and coordinating the new kitchen with the beautiful remodel completed previously by the client were the two most important aspects of this project. The existing spaces are elegantly decorated with an open plan, dark hardwood floors, and natural stone accents. The new, lighter, more open kitchen flows beautifully into the client’s existing dining room space. Satin nickel hardware blends with the stainless steel appliances and matches the satin nickel details throughout the home. The fully integrated refrigerator next to the narrow pull-out pantry cabinet, take up less visual weight than a traditional stainless steel appliance and the two combine to provide fantastic storage. The glass cabinet doors and decorative lighting beautifully highlight the client’s glassware and dishes. Finished with white subway tile, Dreamy Marfil quartz countertops, and a warm natural wood blind; the space warm, inviting, elegant, and extremely functional. copyright 2013 marilyn peryer photography

    Such a beautiful kitchen and well designed for a tight space! Could you tell me how wide are the 4-set of drawers beside the sink?

    Thanks so much Brigitte! The drawer fronts/ cabinet opening sizes are approximately 10.875" wide. We minimized the number of cabinets and built as many as possible together to reduce the number of stiles (vertical fixed partitions) in the cabinet face frames to maximize the actual usable cabinet space in the inset cabinetry.

8. Cabinets to the ceiling. Why stop a foot short when you can take the cabinets all the way up? Even if you can’t...
