It's dawned upon me lately it'd be nice to have a little more modern eye candy here on CincinnatiModernation. What follows is a kitchen renovation I designed and completed in 2008. The project involved a very nice MCM home in the Wyoming suburb of Cincinnati. Unfortunately the existing kitchen had no character whatsoever.
Removing an existing wall now serves as the opening into the new kitchen extending the open floor plan of the existing house. The original low kitchen ceiling was removed to extend the sloped ceilings throughout the first level. An existing exterior attic vent was removed and replaced with glass to mirror the large expanse of glass between the dining and kitchen spaces. The custom hanging island cabinet anchors the new space.
Contrasting Ikea cabinets and stainless Kitchenaid appliances compliment the stark color pallette. The new ceiling and window wall was lined with cement board while the flooring was renewed with cork. Only one hole was needed for the faucet in the Corian island counter beyond the large underset stainless steel sink. New Bertoia stools were a must to line the new island.
