This transitional kitchen has an eclectic, welcoming feel that is full of personality.

This home was a stunning remodel with the talented team at Kathryn Chaplow Interior Design. In the kitchen, a custom dark stain was used on rift cut white oak in Grabill Cabinet’s Lacunar door style. The absence of upper cabinets allows this space to feel like it is a continuation of the living space, rather than just a few walls of cabinets. The full slab backsplash topped by the custom dark washed steel range hood by Raw Urth Designs are truly showstoppers.

In the half bathroom, custom brushed gold frame cabinets with white milk glass doors from Grabill Cabinets lend a vintage and eclectic feel to the space. Previously, this space had dark walls, dark cabinets and dark countertops. Bright, light, and fun now describe this darling of a space.
