Remodeling a Contemporary Country Kitchen
Nothing is more classic than a white kitchen. By adding a few soft, neutral colors to break up the clean white cabinets, you soften the palette and make the kitchen warmer. White colors make a kitchen feel clean, thereby inviting guests to want to cook and eat, whereas warmer tones prevent the kitchen from feeling too clinical and cold. Our latest kitchen remodel project takes classic design elements and mixes them with a few modern touches.
Complete kitchen remodel
When we take on a remodeling project, we work with each client from the concept to the final installation of all products. The first step is to assess the space, and then we talk to the client to get an idea of their dream kitchen. Then the fun begins, choosing the perfect style of the cabinets, the countertops, the sink, the hardware, the lighting, and of course, all the fun aesthetic elements that will make this kitchen feel like home. For this recent kitchen remodel project, we chose to use a creative tile backsplash to add a little country charm to a contemporary kitchen.
The cabinets are going to be the biggest portion of designing a kitchen. They are the most visible, will take up the most space, and serve the biggest functional purpose. You want the cabinets to match your style, as well as be functional in storing all of your kitchenwares. Custom designing your cabinets will give you the best results, utilizing all the space and creating the perfect storage unit or display cases to fit your kitchen.
Raised panel cabinet doors
For this charming kitchen remodel, we used a raised panel cabinet door style. Instead of completely white cabinets, the cabinets feature a fine dark trim to give the cabinets a more rustic design aesthetic. Adding to the rustic theme, the cabinets are complemented with antique bronze hardware and knobs, which is both rustic and modern.
We’re big fans of quartz countertops. They’re durable, stain- and heat-resistant, and offer many more style and color choices than granite or marble. The only difference is that quartz is engineered, whereas granite and marble are made from solid stone. However, quartz can still give your kitchen an organic feel, adding to the theme of a contemporary country kitchen.
We always focus on the cabinets and countertops when we’re designing a kitchen. However, when it comes to tying the whole kitchen design together, you have to think about the big picture, from floor to ceiling. Instead of white walls behind the cabinets and above the counters, we went with a more artistic and chic design choice and added a tiled backsplash. A tiled backsplash adds another textural element, making the design more exciting. By incorporating the colors and the tones from the quartz and the cabinets, we make the kitchen design feel cohesive and complete.
Recessed ceiling lights and a pop of color
Mixing and matching design styles can make for a more personalized kitchen design, so don’t be afraid to add modern touches to a rustic kitchen. For this remodel, we used recessed ceiling lights, instead of hanging fixtures. We painted one wall a vibrant deep blue to add a pop of color to an otherwise white and neutral kitchen.
