Urban Era Kitchen Design Project

share this post

Welcome to our Urban Era Kitchen Design Project, where we infuse the classic mid-century aesthetic with contemporary flair. Featuring a harmonious fusion of walnut and pristine white cabinetry, the design achieves a balance between warmth and minimalism, while gold hardware adds opulence. Sleek matte black fixtures provide a modern edge, complemented by a captivating vertical stacked backsplash.

Join us as we delve into the details of this transformative design journey, where every element has been meticulously curated to create a kitchen that is both timeless and trendsetting.

Revamping the Kitchen Layout for Enhanced Functionality

Central to our approach was creating a floor plan that integrated our client’s daily routines and preferences. By reorienting the kitchen and island layout, we’ve opened the space, fostering a connection between the kitchen and dining area.

This reconfiguration not only enhances functionality but also promotes interaction, as family members can now engage with each other or with guests while they cook and clean.

Cabinetry Harmony: Walnut & White Fusion

Our cabinets feature a harmonious blend of walnut and white finish, boasting a flat panel design that strikes the perfect balance between warmth and modern simplicity. Complemented by floating shelves in matching walnut, these cabinets not only offer ample storage but also serve as stylish focal points, ideal for displaying treasured items.

Moreover, the storage space is optimized for convenience and practicality with curated interior accessories, ensuring every item has its designated place.

Elevated Surfaces: Quartz Countertop & Contemporary Backsplash

The choice of Hanstone Odina Quartz for the countertop adds a soft yet striking element to the space, with its captivating blend of greys against a soft white backdrop.

Elevating the aesthetic further, our backsplash steals the spotlight with its contemporary vertical stacked pattern, courtesy of the Tinte collection. This distinctive feature not only adds visual interest but also infuses a modern twist into the classic mid-century ambiance.

Gilded Accents: Enhancing Elegance with Gold Hardware

Adding a touch of opulence, gold hardware adorns the cabinetry, infusing a sense of luxury into the space. The rich, warm tone of the gold hardware harmonizes beautifully with the walnut cabinets, creating a sophisticated aesthetic. We opted for a combination of knobs and pulls to add an extra layer of intrigue to the design. They both feature curves and subtle grooves that add softness to the space.

Sleek Sophistication: Matte Black Fixtures in Modern Kitchen Design

In this kitchen design, each fixture was carefully selected to achieve a harmonious and contemporary feel. The kitchen faucet from Delta and pendant light fixtures from Visual Comfort & Co. share a common sleek black finish, effortlessly tying together the space with a modern touch. 

Notably, these fixtures feature graceful curves, imparting a sense of softness to the area. By introducing a different finish, we’ve added depth and visual interest to the space, elevating its overall aesthetic appeal.

The Benefits of an Appliance Garage

As mentioned in our previous blog post, Designing For Durability, incorporating an appliance garage into your kitchen design offers a stylish solution to decluttering countertops and maintaining a streamlined aesthetic. It provides a designated space to neatly stow away small appliances when not in use.

However, it’s crucial to adhere to Ontario Building Codes to ensure safety and compliance.

Our Urban Era Kitchen Design Project seamlessly blends the timeless charm of mid-century aesthetics with contemporary sophistication. Through meticulous attention to detail and thoughtful selection of materials and fixtures, we’ve crafted a space that exudes warmth, functionality, and style. As we invite you to explore the details of this transformative design journey, we hope to inspire and empower you to reimagine your own living spaces.
