The Hub

Mid-Century Refresh

Kitchens have become the social and functional heart of the home, where we visit with friends, feed our children, pay bills, and of course, cook - it is the hub of family life.  With that in mind, a new, enlarged kitchen was the catalyst for this contemporary remodel.  The new kitchen was completely reconfigured and expanded to incorporate what had been a cramped eating area.  A casual built-in breakfast nook anchors one end and a peninsula the other end.  Walls were removed between the kitchen, dining, and living rooms, providing water and bringing natural light into the kitchen.  The materials are a contemporary contrast of clean "lights" and rich "darks" with white cabinets and glass tiled backsplash playing against deeply figured quartzite counters and richly stained oak floors.
