Kitchen ViewTransitional Kitchen, DC Metro

Continuing the lines of the existing wrap-around porch, we were able to create a family kitchen with a raised ceiling culminating in a large skylight. The warmth of natural lighting highlights the palate of the material selection. The kitchen extends out to a new deck and yard beyond.

    A site finished floor is going to allow an onsite custom mix of stains. Its a good option for a custom floor.

    The paint is Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue walls and ceilings (with the ceiling color mixed 1 part to 2 parts white). The floor has a near ebony stain - a bit of chocolate brown added for warmth and richness.

    Thanks,

    The cabinets are KraftMaid Dove White and we used Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue for the walls and ceilings (with the ceiling color mixed 1 part to 2 parts white).

    It may be, but this is KraftMaid's Dove White.

    Those are teal microfiber fabric Pottery Barn stools at the island (with the legs cut down about two inches to fit the counter).

    We wanted the kitchen to be bright and cheery, but given its size, we needed some contrast as well. Dove White KraftMaid cabinets, stainless steel appliances and Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue walls and ceilings (with the ceiling color mixed 1 part to 2 parts white) were balanced by absolute black granite counters and a near ebony stain on the floor (a bit of chocolate brown added for warmth and richness). A full height, sand colored, textured tile backsplash was chosen to fill in between the counter and the cabinets.

    Thanks,

    The bench is made with KraftMaid bench cabinets in Dove White topped with blue, white and tan striped bench cushions. We added a bead board as a wainscot below the windows. The table, from the Great British Pine Mine in Kensington, Maryland, was made from reclaimed pine from tobacco barns.

Combined with a crisp color palette, the natural light brightens the entire space, despite the dark flooring and countertops.More kitchen styles:Small KitchensColorful KitchensWood CabinetsSearch all kitchen photos
