First Friday Feature: A Warm and Welcoming Kitchen

Our clients wanted an updated kitchen to where their large family could just walk in, hang-out, and feel right at home. The overall kitchen was already well laid out, so we mostly kept that the same. But with new cabinetry, finishes, and fixtures, it was a complete transformation! Aside from all the new cabinetry and materials in the space, the most striking change is the new island. The island is L-shaped (with a rounded corner) and we’ve incorporated seating which is perfect for people who want to be a part of the action in the kitchen! Well, before giving away too many details of this new warm and welcoming kitchen, let’s explore all the features this beautiful space has to offer!


One of our client’s biggest wish list items was to incorporate lighter cabinetry. Their original cabinetry had a yellow-y finish with heavy wood details – which really added a lot of weight to the space. The new cabinetry is from Ultracraft with a Sarasota door style and a Melted Brie finish. The cabinetry goes to the ceiling, which really “elevates” the space. Love it!


The new countertops needed to be special and something unique. That’s why we landed on a Caesarstone quartz top in a Frosty Carrina finish. This particular finish is special because it replicates the look of marble but it has all the good qualities of quartz. The light countertops create a nice balance with the backsplash, and we love it!


Here comes another wishlist item, something blue. Well, not necessarily blue, but a blueish hue. We love the 3×12 Daltile Artigiano in a Milan Arena finish. It adds warmth and calmness to the space. With having a brick-lay pattern that switches to herringbone over the range, it adds interest and is a complete wow-factor to the space!

Fixtures and Fittings

The fixtures and fittings are what completes the space. From Atlas Homewares, we have a Wadsworth pull in brushed satin nickel. The sink is from Blanco and is a Diamond Silgranit 1-3/4 bowl in the color Cinder. From Rohl, we have a Michael Berman Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet, an air disposal switch, and a luxury air gap, all in satin nickel.
