Modern Kitchen with Cherry Cabinets, Marble Backsplash & Quartz Countertop

Modern Kitchens are so much fun to select color and materials for.    This is the third Kitchen Showroom Display I worked on for the owner.  Had to select the countertop, backsplash and hardware.

The modern cherry cabinets are stained a rich deep brown - so I wanted a dark countertop with a medium color range backsplash to bring it all together.    The countertop is Caesarstone Black Noir which is similar to black absolute but to me, feels more modern.

I fell in love with this marble the moment I saw it at a local stone showroom.   Wow, stunning work of art by nature.  It's a warm gray 2x4 marble tiles.  Notice how the grout is dark enough but doesn't cause too much of a pattern, allowing the natural variation in the tile to take center stage.

Crazy about this kitchen combination.   And the kitchen was craving white, so I added a white tea pot and white items on the shelf.   Once the second shelf gets installed, more white items will be displayed.

Love the cool notched cabinet pulls, adding a sophisticated but fun touch.  I combined them with tab pulls for the drawers and samller cabinets, to anchor the linear pattern.

Remember, cabinet hardware creates patterns and should be chosen accordingly; keeping in mind size, shape, directon and as always, function.   Cabinet hardware must feel good to grab to open and close.

A good design is about juggling aethetics with function.

Although this kitchen design leans modern, it's transitional enough with the warm marble backsplash to fit into many homes styles.

If you need help with choosing colors and materials for your kitchen project, do not hesitate to contact me for a consultaion.

Kitchens are the heart and soul of a home, and your choices out there are endless.  The secret to a successful kitchen is finding the right combination of color and materials that have meaning and inspiration to you.
