The brand-new island functions seating, storage and a maple butcher block counter top that isn’t utilized straight for cutting or slicing. “Individuals need to choose if they wish to live like it’s a furniture piece or as a cutting board,” Rochman states. “The house owners chose they will constantly utilize cutting boards, so it does have a lacquered surface for sturdiness. They desired this island as a main event location where kids can do research, not as a battered cooking utensil.”
Semicustom kitchen cabinetry in a crisp white (Just White by Benjamin Moore) and intense white walls, ceiling and trim (Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore) supply a tidy background. “We were attempting to get a close white in between the cabinets and walls, to not have a huge contrast in between them,” Rochman states.
Rather, the contrast originates from sharpened Outright Black granite counter tops, flat black knobs and pulls, black pendant lights and other black information. “They understood they desired a black-and-white scheme,” Rochman states. “We felt with the wood floorings throughout and the wood-top island, we would have some contrast. They’re from Germany and like a European design.”
The refinished red oak floor covering includes heat and matches the island top. 2 brand-new casement windows being in a brand-new position over the sink, while a previous window was covered to support the brand-new variety.
