This kitchen remodel resulted in an enlarged, highly functional, sleek and modern gourmet kitchen. The dark rift-cut alder cabinets coordinate with the walnut floors and contrast with the horizontal stainless steel hood and Caesarstone tops. A pantry is tucked behind the range wall and appliances are paneled to blend in for this open plan kitchen. The large-format vein cut travertine backsplash pulls in these contrasting tones for a sophisticated look. An appliance garage and open cabinets at the range wall keep everything convenient for preparing meals. A huge island with storage on both sides provides a gathering space for this extended family.
