Before: Cramped Kitchen

The original kitchen was very segmented and had odd angles. Originally, the clients wanted to keep the kitchen in the existing space, but they decided to add on to the room, which allowed designer Christopher Grubb to create an entirely new space.

After: Modern Farmhouse

The homeowners wanted an updated farmhouse design that fit in with their modern traditional style. The new kitchen feels more open and airy with beautiful white cabinetry, porcelain-tiled flooring, stainless steel appliances and a neutral subway-tile backsplash.

Vaulted Ceiling

Originally, the design was going to include a coffered ceiling. However, once the clients decided to expand the space, Grubb created a vaulted ceiling with beams. The new ceiling is a stunning architectural detail and also makes the space feel larger.

Center of Attention

Rustic barstools provide casual seating at the island, which functions as a eating area, preparation station and gathering spot.

Farmhouse Sink

No farmhouse kitchen is complete without an apron-front sink. This white one flows seamlessly with the white cabinetry and light gray countertops and backsplash.

Finishing Touch

Stainless steel pulls are selected to mimic the finish of the appliances.
