what we did
KDS partnered with a Los Gatos couple that wanted to update their home from having compartmentalized kitchen, dining, and living spaces into an interconnected and open floor plan. The kitchen was cramped and isolated, so KDS’ concept for the new space integrated the dining, kitchen, and bar so that the homeowners would be able to cook together, entertain, and seat six at their new island. To do this, KDS changed the orientation of the kitchen and connected the dining area, giving the couple a larger footprint. This created a more expansive and attractive view of the backyard.
We worked closely on styling options with the clients. They wanted to bring light and freshness in addition to opening up the space, so we chose painted white cabinetry from Ovation Cabinetry for the perimeter topped with a grey quartz. For contrast, the island was a darker stained cabinet finished with a white quartzite counter top. Multi-tonal grey subway tile; blown glass pendant lights; and a rich hardwood floor complete the project.
