When it came time to update this Chapel Hill home, the designer turned to CKS for technical knowledge and the practical application of transforming this older home into a transitional and industrial space. The challenge the designer faced was that the space was very traditional throughout. The solution we came up with was to mix the two different styles of traditional and modern to create some interest and tension between the two styles.
We started by completely gutting the kitchen with the goal of creating the essence of a modern bistro-inspired space. We did this by incorporating the thoughtful details such as the subway tile inside the back of the cabinets and the contrasting dark grout. In addition, we incorporated two-toned, custom inset cabinetry, Farrow & Ball paint colors, and a clean caesar stone countertop. The finishing touches included a tongue-and-groove wood feature wall behind the kitchen sink, built-in appliances and pantry, and integrated finger pulls for the cabinets for a modern and high-end look.
