  1. Timeless Transitional

The historic Julian Price House renovation was focused on honoring the integrity of this 1929 Tudor Revival style home while creating a modern kitchen that would work hard for the homeowners and their young family. A classic Alpine finish on the perimeter kitchen cabinets is perfect for highlighting the original hardwood floors and offers a look that’s both trendy and timeless.

  1. Ultramodern

This ultramodern Charlotte kitchen proves white is so much more versatile than it often gets a reputation for. The popularity of white kitchens is often associated with traditional style kitchens, but with its clean lines and sleek stainless-steel appliances, this white kitchen is anything but traditional. Crisp white kitchen cabinets are especially versatile when it comes to adding in pops of color through islands, décor, accents, and accessories. Bright colors pop without overwhelming because they are offset by the composed nature of a neutral white finish.

  1. Elegant & Upscale

Pops of color aren’t for everyone, and sometimes a monochromatic scheme is just what a space is looking for. In this kitchen, the homeowners wanted an elegant kitchen with plenty of kitchen cabinets to aid in organization. From spotless white countertops to a built-in pantry where everything is in its designated place, this kitchen was designed with tidiness in mind. Decorative details including an intricate door profile, glass display cabinets, and graceful hardware elevate the design of this kitchen and lend to a space that’s as refined as is it organized.

  1. Cute, Cozy Cottage

Farmhouse style has been making a splash for several years now. We’ve seen it trending on Pinterest, Houzz, and on our favorite HGTV shows. White kitchen cabinets are the perfect foundation for building the farmhouse kitchen of your dreams. Emphasizing understated, hardworking elements, farmhouses require an unfussy aesthetic and a kitchen that works hard for large families. Complementing white painted cabinetry, we often see apron-front sinks, furniture-like details, and wall paneling to complete the farmhouse feel.
