Open-Concept Onixaa

Modern kitchen design is all about creating a fluid and open space with room to cook, dine and entertain. This beautiful transitional kitchen renovation embraces the open-concept layout using a popular grey and white color scheme and eye-catching details. With a large center island and perimeter countertops to either side, two passageways move through the kitchen allowing for numerous work zones as well as space to dine and entertain in the heart of the home.

The warm and neutral grey of lower shaker-style cabinets is balanced by countertops in PentalQuartz Onixaa. Onixaa is a versatile warm white quartz with subtle grey marbled veining that blends perfectly with darker cabinet colors. The neutral palette of the kitchen is spiked with bright gold hardware and striking white herringbone tile from backsplash to ceiling.

Traditional upper cabinets are being used less and less in modern kitchen design in favor of open shelving. Here we see two rows of stylish reclaimed wood shelves installed on either side of the sink for storing easy-to-grab kitchen essentials. The rest of the eye-level storage including the refrigerator and a few crisp white cabinets falls to the back wall with the range and range hood.

Three large conical glass pendant fixtures with subtle gold hardware hang over the island without impeding on the sightlines through the kitchen. Barstools for three at the island match dining chairs in the adjacent dining area, moving the design into the rest of the living space.
