2023 Kitchen Design: Traditional Winner: Fresh Urban Living

A young couple wanted to update their dark and dated kitchen to reflect their fresh, modern style; they wanted it to be practical for their two young kids but also feel stylish and sophisticated for entertaining. To keep the space bright, light but durable rift-cut white oak was selected for the cabinet bases, and a pale warm gray paint was used on the upper cabinets. Stoneguard Countertop Protection Film protects the desired marble, making it more family friendly. Brass tones add warmth and shine, and black accents add a touch of drama and contrast to the soft color palette and also complement the stone surrounding the fireplace. Storage consists of deep, easy-to-reach drawers and interior-lit pantry cabinets with rollout shelves that flank the refrigerator. A beverage and wine bar area offers additional refrigeration as well as storage. Other features include a Lemans magic corner cabinet, appliance garage, pot filler and island prep sink. A furniture-like piece abuts the island for a casual feeling. Lighting selections complement the fresh, new look and accessories add a natural vibe. It is a welcoming room for all ages.

What the judges said: The material palette is well edited and sophisticated, yet calm and restrained.
