Classically cool

The handsome millwork of a built-in corner cabinet inspired the library vibe of this newly redesigned kitchen in the Near West End, pictured above. Forgoing overhead cabinets and the usual decorative kitchen hood – a custom, recessed ceiling ventilation system that operates with a remote control was used in its place – designers Wyndi Carnes and Blaine McDermott of Forge Design Group Create visual interest with a composition of different drawer fronts and brass hardware, a mix of granite and quartzite surfaces, a carved quartzite backsplash, and an antique sunburst mirror. These details give the kitchen a contemporary touch without it being a contemporary kitchen.

Big kitchen

This clean, bright Fan District kitchen was a dark, choppy space before a recent redesign by kitchen and bathroom designer Marvin Daniel, founder of Home KDW. The windows have been extended to join the counters and the walls have been removed to create a chef’s kitchen for the owners, a couple who enjoy both cooking and entertaining. Sleek flat front cabinetry features anodized hardware, while the veined quartzite countertop pattern and grain of the cabinetry’s laminate veneer finish complement each other to add dimension to the contemporary space.

Elegant and serene

Details like a soft enamel finish on the quarter-sawn white oak cabinets, distressed stone-look flooring, and a subtle glass subway tile backsplash give this contemporary Short Pump kitchen an air of serenity. The reality is that her beauty is more than superficial, says designer Allison Stowers of Custom kitchens, who worked closely with the owners, a retired couple, to create their forever kitchen. Considered details—well-placed storage and pull-out drawers, under-cabinet lighting, quartz countertops, and radiant-heated tile flooring—are enhanced by custom design elements such as a slanted peninsula and the sculptural light fixture above. above.

Timeless look

It is a bit more modern. It’s a bit more traditional. To create a kitchen they would both love, designers Kelly Gentry and Alison Raines of Gentry Raines Interior Design gave traditional elements a modern twist with clean lines and an all-white color scheme. The sculptural form of the range hood – inspired by vintage European designs – is balanced by glass-fronted cabinetry accented with classically inspired mullions. Layering painted cabinetry with crisp quartz countertops, a soft mosaic marble backsplash and burnished gold accents, the designers give the kitchen a 2022 outlook while honoring the traditional Windsor Farms home aesthetic of the 1960s. 1930.
