What was once just a place to cook, the kitchen has taken on a much greater role. Reimagine your kitchen—efficiency isn’t enough, it needs to be as stylish and hardworking as you are. Here are seven tips we used to create this multifunctional space using 540F Maple Slate.
1. KEEP IT OPEN
The most productive place in the house, this space is open for entertaining and well equipped for anything from cooking to homework and everything in between.
2. ADD CONTRAST
540 Maple Slate pops against a bright white backdrop. The contrasting palette creates a spacious feel.
3. ELEVATE DESIGN DETAILS
Elevated details such as molding, Meredith Glass Inserts and solid hardware define the space while green accents echo the tree lined setting.
4. INCLUDE AN ISLAND
An architectural gem, this gravity defying island maximizes utility. Prep, eat, socialize—it supports it all.
5. INTEGRATE DINING
An integrated dining area promotes family gatherings with a view and doubles as homework area.
6. SPLURGE ON STORGAGE
A mix of cabinets, open shelving and island storage ensures every cooking gadget has an easily accessible home.
7. BUILD A BAR
Red, white or rose, this one of a kind wine bar allows you to serve yourself—in style.
