Designer Showhome- Modern Shaker Kitchen

This project was for local builder, Denim homes. We worked together with their interior designer to create a dramatic space full of modern conveniences.  what are my favorite features in this kitchen?

  1. Built-in microwave trim kit- This is a great way to install a microwave in the lower cabinets, and keep it looking neat and tidy.
  2. Pull out pantry units- These are great for storing canned, boxed and bottle foods.
  3. Full size fridge and Freezer- These were installed with a built-in trim kit. they are both counter-depth, giving you easily accessible shelving and cubic footage in the fridge.
  4. Island that doubles as a casual dining area
  5. bar/sideboard leading into the dining room- this is great for serving drinks outside of the kitchen.

My thought is that it makes sense to have the day to day dishes within easy reach of the sink and dishwasher. This look can be traditional, or modern.

There are two takes on this… neat and orderly, for everything it’s place. Or just let everything fall where it may and embrace the spontaneity? check out the renoramma blog in a few weeks to see what I decided on.
