Platinum 300-400 square feet: Karr Bick Kitchen + Bath

Why the judges love it: For a smaller space, the designer did a lot to make it unique, charming and classy. We love the different approach to the floor tile design. This space is bold but still easy on the eyes.

Karr Bick Kitchen + Bath designed a timeless black-and-white kitchen with accents of gold that gives a feeling of refinement and elegance. The homeowners wanted the space to be comfortable enough for coffee with their kids yet stylish enough for entertaining family and friends. Sub-Zero appliances with integrated panels provide the convenience of a large refrigerator/freezer, wine fridge and icemaker with the warmth of cabinetry, not stainless steel. The custom hood blends perfectly with the cabinets, creating a seamless look on the range wall and letting the full-height quartz backsplash shine. The designer removed a bulky drywall pantry to allow space for a dry bar, which opened up the kitchen. The flooring is a wood tile laid in a herringbone pattern and continues into the adjoining sunroom to tie the two spaces together. The details of the kitchen make it truly unique. Painted black window grilles, a 2” mitered apron edge island countertop, vintage artwork and stunning pendants create a kitchen the homeowner will never want to leave.
