Project Spotlight: A Nod to Nature


Beck/Allen Cabinetry was faced with a unique challenge as they began this contemporary kitchen remodel; to create a design consisting of clean lines and a modern sensibility yet grounded by elements found in nature. The resulting space feels wrapped in rich wood and natural stone punctuated by gleaming glass island countertops.

 A frameless door style in maple from Crystal Cabinet Works was selected with the Espresso finish and a chamfered edge. At the base of each wall cabinet a frosted glass tilt-up door allows for easy access while the upper cabinetry provides more than ample storage. The dark Espresso finish provides a stark, clean contrast to the frosted glass and the brushed aluminum laminate drawer fronts below. Multi-level island surfaces distinguish separate spaces for food preparation and barstool seating, a thoughtful design element for homeowners who entertain frequently. Washed in strategically placed lighting, glass countertops sparkle above the highly-textured stone veneer on the island’s face. A professional-grade range and hood by Wolf were selected from AUTCOhome and a refrigeration unit is concealed behind custom paneling for an uninterrupted appearance.
