WilliamsContemporary Kitchen, New York
This outdated kitchen not only got a facelift with top-of-the-line appliances, but the space was also doubled by blowing out the outside wall and installing a glass garage door that can be left closed for privacy and opened for entertaining or simply to enjoy the weather. Indoors, a red tile backsplash pops off cabinetry made to look like cork, while clean, contemporary lines round out this minimalist space. Photo by Chris Amaral.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
I love a kitchen with a garage door! It allows in so much natural light during the day, and gives the kitchen a cool industrial vibe. With so much light filtering in, you can really go big and bold with the backsplash. These tiles are dual glazed — each 2-inch by 4-inch tile is finished in multiple colors with glossy and matte glazes, which gives a slight mosaic look but in a subway-tile format.
