2023 CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence

What was the challenge?

The homeowners aimed to improve function and aesthetics of the kitchen, enhance connections to adjacent spaces and incorporate unique features.

What was delivered?

Creating a bold and striking kitchen design involves a clever play of elements like color, texture, and shape. In this kitchen renovation, the high contrast color scheme sets the stage, with light walls, countertops, backsplashes, and appliances standing out against the dark cabinetry, window frames, plumbing fixtures, and wine display. This stark contrast adds depth and visual interest to the room, making it a focal point in the home.

To further enhance the design, Inspire Homes incorporated a variety of textures to the space. From hardwood flooring to floating shelves, flat cabinetry to fluted cabinetry, each texture adds a layer of complexity and sophistication to the space. The sleek straight lines of the cabinetry and range hood juxtaposed with curved archways, round hardware, and pendant lights create a dynamic interplay of shapes, adding a touch of modern flair to the overall aesthetic of the room.

For the wine enthusiasts client, a floor-to-ceiling wine rack designed to showcase 30 bottles, paired with an undercounter wine cooler was added. Not only adds a functional element but also serves as a stunning visual feature. Completing the look, a quartz slab backsplash that matches the countertops ties the design together seamlessly, ensuring a cohesive and harmonious kitchen space that is both functional and visually captivating.
