This St. Louis Hills area kitchen was redesigned in a mid-century modern style that’s more in tune with the era of the house. A soffit above the sink was removed to increase the size of the room and maximize cabinet space. The wall behind the range was opened to transition into the breakfast room and bring in ample natural light. With careful planning, a small kitchen can become a big space.
In its original incarnation, this kitchen had a linoleum floor and white walls, cabinets, and appliances. The chef of the house wanted a complete kitchen overhaul with masculine flair. The color of his sports car inspired the new countertops. A glass tile backsplash and all new lighting added a bright contrast. Custom- built cabinets were stained with a complementary warm tone to soften the overall design. All of the elements came together to achieve a rustic elegance.
