Country Kitchens

This contemporary remodeled space squeezed a lot of design elements into a small galley kitchen. A mixture of glass, stone and dark wenge stained wood makes for an exciting backdrop framing the beautiful Chicago skyline.

This large kitchen designed for a true cook incorporates three rooms into one. The larger angled island frames a smaller furniture island making this space an ideal two cook kitchen and a unique space to entertain.

Two furniture style cabinets flank the opening of this beautiful kitchen. The dark wenge stain used in the family room is carried into the kitchen as an accent on the island the refrigerator wall. Vivid green painted walls make a stunning frame to the entrance to the room.

This island provides a graceful transition into the existing living room space. It was carefully placed to avoid becoming an obstacle in the kitchen. It functions well as a preparation area, has abundant storage and keeps the guests away from the working space. Photo by Marble Street Studio.

In this kitchen, we use European cabinets, CaesarStone and Hakatai tiles for a clean, energetic look. Using open shelves on walls instead of box cabinets makes this kitchen feel much bigger.

In order to save space on the counters, the microwave is installed in the custom European cabinetry. The cabinets are a lovely white washed oak and meet strict E1 standards for indoor air quality.

Under-counter fluorescent lights, glass wall tiles, glass shelves, glass-faced upper cabinets and a glass hood are designed to allow the kitchen to be flooded with light without using lot of energy.

Using a counter-depth refrigerator gives the kitchen a sleek, European built-in look. What isn't seen is the slide-out recycling center, including composting bin, behind the cabinet doors.

Using a white under-mount sink with a white CaesarStone counter create a seamless look. Have a wide, one bowl sink with a commercial sprayer makes cleaning big pots, small animals and kids a breeze.

Glass mosaic tile set in a random pattern adds shimmer and color to this remodeled kitchen. The warm colors tie into the cork flooring and caramelized bamboo flooring in the adjacent room.
