Waypoint Design Contest Winners

If there was ever any doubt about the popularity of painted white Shaker style cabinetry, it is now firmly put to rest. The winners in all three categories of the latest Waypoint Living Spaces design contest chose style 650F in Maple Linen for their winning entries. The three looks are all a bit different which speaks to the flexibility of this door style.

The winning kitchen was designed by Kitchens by Design of Indianapolis Indiana. It has a classic look with its nail studded gray leather counter stools and gray veined countertops. The lights over the island have the look of updated vintage fixtures. The tall goose neck faucet looks like it could have come from a professional kitchen. The heavy top molding is a perfect finishing treatment.

The owners’ of this retirement home asked for a master bathroom that made them feel like they were in their own private spa. Zelmar Kitchen Designs & More, LLC of Orlando converted the 1990s space into the room of their dreams. The striated floor tile and stand-alone bathtub are just as much on-trend as the style 650F vanity cabinets in Maple Linen. The stained glass window adds color and pattern in the otherwise sleek room

The built-in hutch in the breakfast area of this Massachusetts home added storage and style. The bleached wood flooring was the perfect background for the painted cabinetry. The symmetrical design features Wine Storage Cubes, clear glass inserts in the center and bumped-outs in the wall and base sections. The whole look has an updated country look. Design by Riley Kitchen and Bath of Bristol, Rhode Island.

I love the look of the soft white of Maple Linen cabinets and apparently so do a lot of other designers.
