I’m only a major worry wort as I’m going to present to you the BIG REVEAL of our fresh out of the box new current high contrast oak kitchen at The Forest Modern!!! When I began planning our new custom home more than two years back, I did not understand what I needed our kitchen to resemble. I realized I needed it to feel current yet agreeable. The kitchen is the core of our house, isn’t that valid for generally homes?

On the off chance that you have the chance to work with a kitchen planner that does those extravagant (thus supportive) renderings, I’d exceptionally suggest that course. That was not the situation for me. I worked with a nearby “old school” cupboard creator who fundamentally outlined extremely essential cupboard measurements per my direction with essential kitchen format that I had structured. I depended on a couple photographs to demonstrate him for explicit looks I was attempting to accomplish like our forte break sawn white oak cupboards and framing. More on that in a bit. To structure a kitchen along these lines is unsafe, yet I needed to heed my gut feelings and ask that what I was imagining in my insane plan brain would really look and feel how I needed it to. There were a couple of key components that were an unquestionable requirement for our kitchen.


Our previous kitchen felt somewhat shut off from the primary living region so I needed this one to feel like only an expansion of our lounge space. We have 12′ roofs all through the entire principle floor. Those can be a gift and a revile all in the meantime when managing configuration challenges. I cherish our own however and I worked through those “challenges.”

Notice there are no upper cupboards (other than our manufactured ins). I settled on brilliant choices in regards to capacity arrangements in all the lower cupboards so as to have no requirement for uppers. I’ve cherished the vibe of open racking for a couple of years now. I can hardly wait to get caught up with styling those racks with viable every day dishes just as fun, yet basic, decorating. Indeed, even the racks were specially crafted by our bureau producer.


I didn’t realize I required these in my life until I began inquiring about approaches to depict two spaces without blocking sees. The kitchen expected to feel characterized inside a space yet not bound by it. Initially there was a two foot dropped down soffit between the kitchen and living space and I detested how it felt. So we thumped it out and I worked with a phenomenal neighborhood metal fabricator who planned this steel transom based off certain representations I gave him. Nailed it!
