Modern Farmhouse With All The Details

This kitchen is available to experience in our kitchen showroom at our Ballston Spa store and offers a distinctly cozy, yet contemporary look and feel.  The design is brimming with personal details, including a matching copper sink and matching stove hood.  Gorgeous Rustic Hickory cabinets offer beautiful character and the sturdily built, unique, wood island countertop not only adds functionality but offers beauty all at once.  Exposed wood beams, unexpected brick tile accents, and the pop of country barn red color from the island tie together beautifully to bring you this modern farmhouse design. Inside the cabinetry, you will find convenient accessories like an in-drawer charging station, a spice rack, and a gorgeous Walnut drawer box.

Traditional Small Space With A Big Impact

This kitchen has a clean, modern American traditional look and feel and proves that you don’t have to have a big space to make a HUGE impact with your kitchen!  Plus, you can have all the bells and whistles too, including pop in/out outlets and switches, in cabinet storage solutions, and a fabulous wine rack.  This dove white cabinetry is EverCore© by Merillat Masterpiece.  There’s no wood grain on an EverCore© surface, so paint applies evenly without variation and it minimizes the cracks, crevices, mineral streaks, and wood color variations you can see on natural wood.  In keeping with the traditional timeless appeal, the gray glossy inverted subway tile, coordinating Cambria quartz countertop, and spa blue hardware provides a visually appealing crisp and clean design.

Traditional Style With Sparkle & Shine

The homeowner wanted much more space to cook and entertain in her small kitchen and our designer gave her a complete re-design from the flooring all the way up to the unique and fun lighting and all the personal requisite details in-between.  The result, a casually nuanced overall feel and elegant, inviting look that combines both traditional and contemporary elements.  Paneled and glass cupboard doors with lighting are accented by the herringbone backsplash that has a polished sparkle incorporated into the tiles.  Gleaming Cambria quartz countertops, modern stainless steel appliances and polished hardwood floors provide a crisp and clean contrast that provides visual appeal and a sparking vitality.  The use of handcrafted door pulls, a smattering of polished accents and tailored upholstered seats distinguish this traditional kitchen from the next.
