Beyond Basic White Kitchen

Distinctive elements elevate this petite white kitchen from standard to stunning.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Layers of Luxury

      The kitchen designer layered this petite kitchen with elegant materials and sparkling accessories. A barrel-vaulted ceiling, distinctive range hood, and mirrored cabinets bring in the elegance, while crisp white cabinetry anchors the classic look. 

    • Mirrored Elements

      Clad in stainless steel, the curvilinear vent hood mimics the shape of the barrel-vaulted ceiling. Antiqued-mirror doors on either side bounce light around the room and add a fresh twist to glass-front cabinets.

    • Sparkle & Shine

      Mirrors on cabinet doors are a clutter-concealing alternative to glass and mix well with the polished-nickel cabinet hardware and metal range hood.

    • Streamlined Materials

      Continuing the countertop material as a backsplash presents a simple, streamlined look. Since the kitchen is attached to a small living area, the designer tried to keep the number of materials to a minimum. 

    • Maximize Storage & Style

      Floor-to-ceiling cabinets take full advantage of vertical storage space and continue into the living area to visually join the two rooms. The peninsula separates the kitchen from the sitting area and also serves as buffet.

    • Eye-Catching Faucet

      A vintage-style bridge faucet is a pretty feature on the peninsula between the kitchen and living area. The deep double sink is perfect for entertaining and hiding dirty dishes from the adjoining room.

    • Warm Wood Accents

      To provide even more storage and display space and to bring warm wood tones into the room, the homeowners added a wooden hutch they found at a local antiques shop.
