White Beach KitchenTraditional Kitchen

This spectacular new beach kitchen was designed for an older couple with the love of the water in mind. The house is not large but the client wanted the kitchen area to be the main aspect of the design and to be comfortable and serene.The windows were optimized for the maximum view from the eat in kitchen area. The large island was designed for grandchildren to enjoy and to use for buffet dining when cooking outside. The laundry also is a “prep” kitchen that has an additional refrigerator and is where small appliances are stored on the counter to keep the main kitchen counters clutter free.

The client asked for a fun seaside kitchen with a neutral backdrop of cabinetry so she could showcase her colorful accessories. We chose classic white cabinetry to complement the maple floors and selected soft white for the wall color to keep harmony with the incredible views. She wanted a no fuss kitchen with lots of counterspace for multiple cooks when her adult kids came to visit. Her husband requested a no or low maintenance countertop as well so we chose a ceasarstone top that mimics traditional carerra marble but without the associated issues with marble tops. To emphasize the beach living atmosphere, we chose a glass that has a slight frosted wave in it and then turned it sideways instead of the traditional vertical application. The knobs and handles are a mix of traditional and modern and are satin nickel to match the sink and faucet and appliances. In addition to the large laundry space, one wall is dedicated to storage and features pullout drawers and houses the microwave as well. Small details such as the open shelf under the upper cabinets to showcase colorful pottery and the wine grid help give some dimension the upper cabinetry.

    The floor is walnut. The range is on a wall adjacent to the ref wall. This kitchen was in Better Homes and Gardens Kitchen and Bath Ideas two issues ago. There may be more on my website. I cannot recall! Thank you!!

    Island length looks to be 8 or 9ft judging by the number of counter stools

    It is satin nickel but do not recall the brand. I am thinking though at this time we used mostly Sigma Faucets!

            What Houzz contributors are saying:

            Becky Harris added this to 24 Great White KitchensSep 24, 2011

            Transitional: Upholstered counter stools are an impermanent element that can bring in a touch of color. This can also be accomplished with fabric cushions for counter stools or chairs.

            Becky Harris added this to Get the Look: Beach Cottage StyleJul 6, 2011

            These pendants add a hint of nautical style to this bright kitchen.

            Becky Harris added this to Modernizing Cottage StyleMar 16, 2011

            Keep things crisp and tailored without losing comfort. The upholstered barstools add comfort and a fun polka dot print, yet they are also very tailored. The wooden plank floor keeps the cottage spirit alive, while the white elements in the kitchen make things a bit sleeker.

            Do you like these barstools/maybe different finish and different fabric. Just look at design
