California Contemporary Kitchen
The busy, dual-career homeowners of this post-war, 1950’s home wanted to reconfigure and update its spaces to create an open floor-plan with a modern, masculine aesthetic and a central family hub that focused on the kitchen. New plans for the home focused on improving the flow throughout and creating an open concept contemporary kitchen that would serve as the heart of the home. Walls in the kitchen came down, increasing the natural light, creating a seamless interaction with the living and dining spaces, and improving the overall flow of this Santa Clara home.
Clients were drawn to a modern masculine aesthetic. Large format Porcelanosa tiles at the kitchen back-splash create a sleek, seamless look. Concrete-like Caesarstone quartz was used for the counters with a jewel-like Palisandro Blue granite as the raised waterfall bar for dramatic punctuation. Contemporary kitchen cabinets made of laminate with wood grain was used throughout the home to provide texture and contrast with the smooth surfaces.
