Integrating white kitchen with open plan

White kitchens still are popular, but they are changing. This Tomco Company project in Blaine is a great example. The original 1996 kitchen was all white: cabinets, counters, appliances and floor. However, the adjacent great room was a mix of honey oak cabinets and millwork, green marble tile and brass. Fast forward 20 years and the same open floor plan now looks like it was freshly built with clean lines and upscale character.

We worked with the homeowners, Cornelia and Dale, to integrate the entire open space, including the kitchen, great room, entry foyer and formal dining room. The new white cabinets are better quality and more functional than the old ones.  Meanwhile, the rich engineered wood floor, gray quartz counters and stainless steel appliances add color and texture.

We upgraded the white enamel trim and extended it and the gray tops into the adjacent rooms. The railing to the lower level, the dining room columns and the great room cabinetry mimic the kitchen woodwork, and the cabinetry and tops that flank the updated gray tile fireplace match the kitchen.
