This minimalist kitchen is part of a new construction project in scenic Stone Canyon, and the design of the home captures the serene beauty of the surrounding mountains and vegetation. The kitchen opens to the dining and great room, with breathtaking views framed on both sides by floor-to-ceiling windows.
Every design decision in this space supports the overall style, which emphasizes clean, horizontal line and an interesting palette including greys, white and the slightest touches of soft blues. Careful attention to balance in contract retains interest. Details in the cabinetry maintain the minimal, while highlighting the horizontal through wire brushing, and an integrated aluminum trim that runs uninterrupted from side to side on doors and drawers, even incorporating the hardware in this line. The simple line of the hood repeats this as well.
Within the cabinets hardworking elements such as a sink tipout, garbage & recycling pullout, deep pots and pans drawers, and utencil dividers ensure that the kitchen is as functional as it is beautiful. Open storage above the built-in refrigerator houses decorative accessories.
White quartz countertops provide a crisp contrast against the dark cabinets and glossy blue in the custom back-painted glass backsplash and outlets. Undercabinet LED lighting illuminates and softens this blue. A culminating focal point is achieved through the use of 3” marbled quartz at the island that waterfalls to the floor, putting it on display from the great room, and keeps the cabinetry from overly darkening the kitchen.
