2010 NKBA Design Award: Best Before & After

Design Notes: This eclectic kitchen's centerpiece is an island consisting of three parts: blue cabinets housing the sink, dishwasher and trash compactor (black quartz counter); a smaller black section housing a microwave drawer (blue quartz countertop); and a turned red post with a 3-inch-thick round maple top. White perimeter cabinets and oak flooring add a classic touch to balance the bright colors and rounded shapes.
Products and Materials: Sonoma Tilemakers glass mosaic tile backsplash, Cambria Bristol Blue and CaesarStone Absolut Noir counters, Zee Design custom cabinets, KitchenAid range and refrigerator.
