what we did
A full home renovation brought us to together with this family in Los Gatos. The overall vision for the living and kitchen areas was to modernize and create an open floor plan to take advantage of the natural light.
KDS designed a clean, transitional space in an L-shape with a generous island. A simple layout was necessary to facilitate the open floor plan for the great room. While the design is unassuming, we made sure that the pantries were well-designed to maximize storage for a family of four. The corner where the pantry and the drawers meet in particular, needed to be highly efficient and the mechanisms to the swing-outs had to be smooth.
To preserve the symmetry of the cabinets and the clean lines of the kitchen, the clients opted for a Thermador range and Sharpe microwave drawer. Choosing a range meant that the wall cabinets weren’t interrupted and the microwave drawer allowed the family to maximize the counterspace.
Stylistically, a recessed panel door with a slight bevel in Columbia Cabinet Iceberg white was chosen for the perimeters accented by a custom grey painted island. Glass subway tile for the backsplash and a marble-like white quartz for the countertops lend a touch of glamour to the kitchen. And a wide-plank, oak hardwood flooring give the space warmth.
The end result is a bigger, brighter, and more open kitchen that integral to the living areas of the newly remodeled home.
