modern kitchen open to a dinette

Florida fresh start – kitchen & dining

Contemporary, white acrylic upper kitchen cabinets combine with espresso wood lower cabinets for a fresh look in this renovated 1980’s home. The glass backsplash tile mimics the gleaming inside of an abalone shell for a coastal touch. Counters are quartz with subtle marble-like veining. Flooring is porcelain tile to look like wood planks. Sophisticated lighting in the dining room supplies a casual, elegant look.

Kitchen island with bar seating

At bar height, the kitchen island helps to separate kitchen and living space in a large open room. White glass cylinder fixtures hang above the bar suspended from a high ceiling.

Coastal kitchen and dining area

Removal of a kitchen wall opens the space for additional cabinetry and an expanded bar.  White Shaker cabinets are the new standard for coastal kitchens. Counters are easy-care white quartz. Green glass backsplash connects with the lush landscape outside.
