What Houzz contributors are saying:
Bold, citrusy hues are a personal favorite of mine. I like how they bring a fun jolt of color to a room. They can be quite intense, though, so pairing them with plenty of white and other light neutrals is key. Here the green is grounded nicely by the warm gray door and drawer fronts on the perimeter cabinets.See more of this kitchenCabinets, island: custom, Downsview Kitchens; wall and ceiling paint: Extra White, Sherwin-Williams; flooring: limestone tile, Exquisite Surfaces
Three appliance garages with pull-down steel tambour doors store the family’s numerous small appliances, keeping them close by but out of sight and the counters clutter free. A small stepladder on wheels is cleverly tucked behind the toe kick for reaching items on the higher shelves. Using the same green-apple lacquer featured on the island base for the inside of the appliance garage added a nice splash of color on the back wall of the kitchen. Meanwhile, the custom, easy-to-clean textured melamine cabinets with flushed recessed metal pulls offer a relief from the bold color of the lacquer. “The cabinets have a calm look,” says Holway. “I don’t like knobs, so I love the recessed pulls, and the drawers are big, sturdy and self-closing.”Views can be enjoyed from the island or the nearby breakfast table with modern chairs, located by large windows that overlook the backyard.Breakfast table, chairs: Design Within Reach; wall and ceiling paint: Extra White, Sherwin-Williams; flooring: limestone tile, Exquisite Surfaces13 Popular Kitchen Storage Ideas and What They Cost
