Sophisticated, Contemporary Kitchen in Pearl River, NY

Sophisticated, Contemporary Kitchen in Pearl River, NY Love the look of a modern kitchen with clean lines and a minimalist vibe? So do we! Well, to be honest, as a kitchen design and cabinet company, we tend to like all styles of kitchens and consider ourselves lucky to be able to design dream kitchens day in and day out. But this design just might be one of our favorites.

The term “contemporary kitchen” typically connotes visions of something sleek and white or dark and moody. Our modern style loving clients, however, had a completely different vision in mind. Throughout the collaboration process, we knew this kitchen was going to be amazing, but even we were blown away by the finished result. It’s clean and sophisticated, yet warm and inviting – and also incredibly functional!

A Practical U-Shaped Layout

The square-footage and u-shaped footprint gave us a lot of room to work with, freeing up our creativity. Given the width of the space, we immediately knew incorporating an expansive island would work well in the layout. With plenty of wiggle room, we were able to center the sink under the window and add the dishwasher next to it, anchor the back wall with a 36-inch range, and place the refrigerator on the third wall adjacent to a pantry. This design creates the ideal kitchen work triangle and allows for lots of storage and counter space.

The Workhorse Island

The four-foot by six-foot island is the center of the kitchen. Its size and continuous slab top is perfect for meal prep and entertaining. There is enough room for seating for six and storage on two sides. We incorporated pull out drawers opposite the range – which are ideal for storing pots and pans – as well as drawers, a microwave nook, and a trash/recycling pull-out on the other side.

Eye Catching Cabinets

The star of the kitchen is the cabinetry. This design features Superior Cabinets’ Vienna door style in a Consilk finish. The contemporary style of the thermofused melamine construction, slab front, and flat crown are instantly warmed by the light honey-colored wood-toned finish. We believe this combination is simply stunning. The cabinets are packed with storage features, including plenty of rollouts and a spice pull out. For a cohesive look in the open kitchen-dining area, the homeowners carried the cabinetry by adding floor to ceiling cabinets in each corner.

Soothing Aesthetics

All the little details in this kitchen work together to exude a chic, minimalistic, yet inviting, vibe, including:

  • The white farmhouse sink from Nantucket Sinks USA that helps to soften the design
  • The simplicity of the Caeserstone countertop in Vivid White and backsplash that showcase rather than compete with the beauty of the cabinetry
  • Honey Bronze Ascendra hardware in square knobs and squared-off handles from Top Knobs for a more contemporary feel that coordinates with the switch plates, Kohler Crue pull-down faucet, pendant lighting, stools, and range
  • A sleek, white vent hood that seamlessly blends in with the backsplash
  • Flooring that is timeless yet is the perfect option for a modern space
