Contemporary Carlsbad Great Room

The layout in this kitchen wasn't bad. It had a corner pantry that took up a lot of space for minimal storage. We took that out and gained the corner for a lazy susan and upper corner cabinets. We added a large roll-out shelf pantry for food storage. We also added a full transom row of upper cabinets for additional seasonal storage. The existing cabinets were in rough shape and the design was very dated. The client's style is contemporary with a bit of a coastal nod. The kitchen is mostly white with shades of grey and some added woven texture. We created a focal point at the hood by using glass tile in a chevron pattern and a black stainless hood.

We carried the textured feel to the kitchen table and into the family room. The family room adds more coastal blue to the design. The dated built in under the tv and staircase wall were removed and updated. A fresh coat of paint for the whole house completed the look. The adjacent laundry room got a refresh as well with a new patterned floor that uses the same blue from the family room walls. A new cabinet, sink, faucet and fun penny round tiles complete the look.
