Classic Naturals Kitchen
– Corvallis, OR –
This open, light-filled kitchen seamlessly blends natural and contemporary elements. The white oak cabinetry and hardwood floors create an elevated touch throughout the kitchen and the remainder of the home. As this kitchen faces north, the room has consistent natural light throughout the day, however, it is cool and muted. Our designer recommended counterbalancing that coolness with the greige cabinetry along the exterior of the kitchen. A large four-person island provides ample seating and counterspace and showcases a minimalist veined quartz countertop. Handmade tile was installed from counter to ceiling creating a beautiful accent to the overall design. A custom shiplap range hood ties in the opposing white oak cabinetry and the built-ins that we added in the adjoining family room. Statement light fixtures and oil-rubbed bronze hardware serve as a contrast to all the other neutral design elements.
MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT
By relocating appliances, we improved the kitchen layout, and enlarged the counterspace and work area. The corner sink remained in its original location but was updated with a timeless apron front farm sink. To gain optimal storage capacity in the kitchen, our designer recommended full height pantry cabinets on either side of an appliance station. This appliance station features a built-in quartz counter, tile backsplash, floating shelves, and hidden pocket doors so that when in use the doors remain out of the kitchen workspace. It provides a perfect spot where all small cooking appliances like a microwave or toaster oven can remain out of sight, freeing up counterspace for its intended purpose of food prep and for gathering.
