Pacific PalisadesTransitional Kitchen, Los Angeles
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Something new: Silestone countertops, with their strong and clean look, contrast the rustic nature of the rough-hewn boards overhead. A metallic backsplash is a modern touch that reflects the light. Tip: Use reflective surfaces to lighten up a space. “I always incorporate some glass cabinets in the kitchen, because they feel like they open up the space,” Schey says. Glass cabinet doors, appliances and a vent hood of stainless steel, and metallic tiles bounce the light around. Caged pendant lights and polished hardware add extra shine.Backsplash tiles: Lucien Metallics Silver Glass Bricks, Ann Sacks; hardware: Rohl; pendant lights: Ralph Lauren; range: Wolf; refrigerator: Sub-Zero
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Ceiling: “The entire kitchen inspiration came from finding the right reclaimed wood boards used in the ceiling,” Schey says. Eight-inch-wide white oak floors add a classic touch; wide floorboards are often found in older homes. Tip: Use the ceiling to define a space in an open floor plan. The reclaimed vintage boards define the kitchen’s main work area overhead, from the island to the countertops.
