To infuse a traditional 1920s Tudor house with clean-line modern style, this kitchen welcomes contemporary urban style with a nod to the classics. Strikingly squared-off, flat-front cabinets drive the contemporary scheme, while their oak construction and notable wood grain texture compliment the woodwork of surrounding rooms. A coffee-dark stained finish melds rich, traditional warmth with a popular urban palette. Stainless steel recessed drawer pulls and toe-kicks compliment the sleek appliances. Glass-front upper cabinets mix in a personal display touch.
This kitchen has all the hallmarks of vintage cottage style: bin-style pulls, exposed hinges, inset flat-panel cabinet doors and drawers, open plate racks, and glass doors in some of the upper cabinets. The comfortable familiarity of the cottage look cleverly disguises modern amenities and functions: Custom drawers hold double dishwasher drawers to the right of the sink, vertical storage keeps trays and baking sheets in order, and extra-deep drawers stash cereals and snacks. An island made out of rustic alder stained to a rich, dark finish and topped by honed black granite anchors the clean white cabinetry and subway-tile walls.
The pure geometry of horizontal and vertical planes uncluttered by paneling, ornament, highlights, or shadows defines contemporary style. Slab doors with hidden Euro-style hinges give the base cabinets a clean-line appearance; linear metal pulls are discreet necessary additions. The rich color and prominent wood grain of the walnut cabinets compliments the sleek profile while generating warmth sought in every home. Upper cabinets outfitted with tinted glass open up instead of out in uniquely modern function.
