Contemporary Kitchen Remodel

by Writer

Our kitchens are where we cook, eat and entertain so it’s important to create a kitchen design that fit all your needs.  Renovating a kitchen is a smart bet for increasing the value of your home.

Today, we will take a look to a wonderful project. Let me start with the cabinets. The cabinets of this kitchen looked dated and the black worktops was to dark for the space. The owners wanted something more contemporary  and bright.

The photo below is the before photo of the kitchen.

So before the remodel the owners made a list of the things they like and dislike about their kitchen.

Here are the things they thought about:

  • The overall layout and style you want
  • The island with drawers, cupboards, seating spaces.
  • The countertop size and material (Quartz, Granit, Laminam, Wood or others)
  • The material, color and number of cupboards
  • The backsplash
  • The hardware style and color
  • The layout of the appliances
  • The pantry (it is possible to add a walk-in pantry)
  • How bright the kitchen is
  • The light fixtures
  • The budget

The floor

The owner decided to add new tile on the floor over the course of the kitchen remodel.  The tile is an  Italian porcelain tile that give the look of marble floor.


Results: A white-and-grey  kitchen who can give a surprising amount of personality. Now, we can see all the natural light from the large windows.


They chosen Caesarstone Calacatta Nuvo Quatz countertop. An interpretation of natural Calacatta marble that brings a wide and elegant contrast to the room.


A backsplash is the best place to add a pop of color into a kitchen design. The owners added a long grey tile from Ceragres. The tile is stacked horizontally. This look works well with a contemporary design and creates pleasing horizontal lines throughout the kitchen.

Cabinet doors

They chosen a maple white shaker style door. Shaker style is timeless. This color is called ‘lacquer”  Benjamin Moore Pale Oak OC-20 but it has a satin finish not a gloss lacquer finish.

Cabinet Hardware

They selected slim long black hardware for their new shaker doors and it is gorgeous.

Breakfast Table

The breakfast table is made of walnut wood and is attached to the island. This luxury wood gives the kitchen its warm, inviting glow, and makes it stand out from the white Shaker-style cabinetry.

Light fixtures

The selection of black fixture and hardware paired with white cabinets make the kitchen stands out.

Wall Paint

The color of paint on the wall is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter HC-172.
