A family kitchen transformed into a French, traditional style with simple updates and a change in approach. “It was time to modernize the kitchen to their tastes,” said designer Ed Cholfin, president of AK Complete Home Renovations.
Maple cabinetry with a nutmeg brown stain creates a warm atmosphere. “Maple takes a stain very consistently,” said Cholfin. “With the wash that the stain has, there is a subtle two-tone effect on the maple.”
The two-seater island now sports a high-top table as well as a low bar for the children. “The island has a mushroom effect to it,” Cholfin commented.
The cabinetry contrasts with the neutral St. Cecilia granite countertops around the kitchen perimeter and on the island.
