The homeowners requested a light color scheme for this high-end kitchen, which is on the smaller side and only features one source of natural light within it. To address this, white lacquer cabinets were paired with an old style ceramic tile in gloss blue, which provides a pop of color while helping to carry luminescence throughout the space. The white cabinets and light blue tiles are complemented by soft gray tones sparsely worked in on the wall near the window. The major challenge in this space was the island. The island houses some appliances as well as a good amount of storage, and it is integral to the functionality of the workspace of the kitchen. However, the dimensions of the kitchen made it impossible for the island to be freestanding the way most islands are within kitchens. Instead, here, the island comes out of the wall like a peninsula. To create visual and physical separation between the countertop and the island top of this transitional kitchen, a thicker Caesarstone countertop was used for the surface that meets the butcher block island top. The two different materials create a nice dichotomy while also complementing each other very nicely. A three-piece crown moulding is used throughout the space.
