Transitional Kitchen with Gray Cabinetry in Washington, D.C.


Designed by Jennifer Gilmer

The client’s home was decorated in a casual yet elegant manner, making the 1980s kitchen out of sync with the rest of the home. The new kitchen feels much larger, thanks to the small structural changes that opened up the floor plan. Keeping the cabinet color and style consistent throughout the three areas make the space cohesive. The previous layout was a cramped U-shape due to a load-bearing wall at one end. The layout was revised to take out that wall, which allowed for a large island as well as continuous traffic flow throughout the kitchen. Previously, a hallway and a half wall separated the kitchen from the casual dining area. Taking down the wall required a structural column, so we incorporated it into the corner of the island. The column was clad with Peruvian Walnut to match the island’s countertop. Instead of the column becoming an eye sore in the middle of the room, it became a unique architectural detail. By positioning a 24” full depth armoire-like cabinet between the two doorways, we added hidden counter space that can be used as a desk area, recharging station or bar. Doors open and retract into the cabinet with clever hardware. Below the counter, an ice maker and a beverage refrigerator are disguised with cabinet panels. A tall pantry pulls out to allow easy access from both sides. Replacing the open bookshelves that once flanked the large windows with a pair of tall, deep cabinetry gives the dining area even more storage.
