Soft light and colors brighten up this contemporary kitchen designed by Drury Design.
Along with our comprehensive gallery featuring selections across Drury Design’ line of kitchen designs, we want to share some of the individual examples featuring individual kitchens. This gallery features a kitchen renovation project adding clean lines and light in a contemporary design.
While remodeling the entire home, Drury converted a dimly narrow, traditional kitchen with ornate cabinetry into an airy, contemporary model. The floor plan was reworked to open up the space to the adjacent family room, moving the entrance itself.
Drury created multiple workstations, added a large island, and incorporated modern appliances into the sleek and open design. Symmetrical cabinets now flank the new entrance between the rooms, creating a transition into the kitchen and breaking up the vertical lines of the space.
To help add perceived length to the kitchen, dual cabinet tones were selected. The bank of cabinets accommodating an integrated refrigerator are in dark-stained hickory, as is the island. The remaining cabinets feature bleached alder.
The island is topped by a three-inch thick white stone slab, while the sparkling glass mosaic backsplash and a double-stack hood round out the modern elements.
The black and white stained cabinetry face off over an island incorporating both colors, standing on rich natural hardwood flooring.
Lighting consists of a series of recessed fixtures in the ceiling, spanning around the room, plus three ultra modern glass chandelier pieces hanging over the island. Island features built-in sink and dining space overhang at near end.
The mosaic backsplash can be seen above the range here, beneath a modern steel dual hood vent. Thick slab countertop on the island adds literal and figurative weight to the kitchen center.
