The kitchen in this new-construction home is inspired by a visit to the Hamptons with a little European-modern flair mixed in. Rooted in the classic Hamptons fashion with white, transitional-style cabinetry, designers Accent on Cabinets and Slavin Residential took the light, comfortable Hamptons kitchen and gave it warmth and drama with natural walnut accents. Shiplap was applied to the walls and simple moldings and crown were used to ensure the space keeps the Hamptons feel. White cabinets are accented by polished nickel elements. A custom walnut island is a must in the chef’s dream kitchen. The rich walnut wood covers the built-in refrigerator and freezer columns with icebox hardware for an extra touch. A hand-hammered, custom-polished nickel hood was added for a touch of shimmer and glam. A Carrara marble backsplash set in a herringbone pattern wraps the range wall. The airy elegance is continued in the breakfast nook, which is encased in windows and includes built-in seating. Additional utility hides behind the cabinetry with interior lighting, built-in outlets, charging stations, a dog-feeding area and plenty of drawers for convenience.
Why the judges love it:
The hardware in the space is so unique, and we especially love the old hinges on the refrigerator front. The refrigerator, floor and walnut counter complement one another well for a cohesive look.
