In this project spotlight, our homeowners were looking for a more modern kitchen, with extra space for their expanding family. The original space was small, with very little natural light. The dark wood cabinetry didn’t help the size of the space, either.


Gardner/Fox designed a kitchen centered around a large, free-standing island. In order to accommodate the homeowners need for more space, we knocked out the wall the stood between a small family room and kitchen, and expanded! The new space is now double the size of the original.

The new kitchen is complete with bright white cabinetry, Coastal Grey quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances, but the real star of the show is the extra-large custom built kitchen island. The cabinetry, countertops, and appliances give the kitchen a pretty modern feeling, which is half of what our home owners wanted. The all-new island (designed by Village Handcrafted Cabinetry) is topped with a natural stained butcher’s block, which helps to break up the modern look. The wood stain gives the kitchen a softer, more classic element, plus it helps to incorporate the oak flooring into the space.

There you have it, a bright shiny new kitchen, that looks modern but feels homey! To see more pictures, check out the project here, on houzz!
