Sonoma Kitchen Remodel | Centsational Style

This most up-to-date kitchen renovation is in a home positioned in the Sonoma Valley, surrounded by oak and olive trees, and rolling hills covered in vineyards. If you’ve at any time regarded a check out to the region, I advise this write-up on the very best of Sonoma County.

I wished this place to echo its surroundings so the colors ended up influenced by the neighborhood landscape. I selected dark wood cabinets in the exact tone as the oak floors and olive eco-friendly cupboards to perform off the trees that mature all all-around.

The hues are wealthy and conventional, but the area also incorporates fashionable touches these as marble search quartz, black components, gold mild fixtures, and open up shelving.


This kitchen area is compact, considerably less than 12 ft from refrigerator to window, so I experienced to be clever about appliance placement and cabinetry. I needed to enchantment to a broad range of customers with the finishes and further storage.

Here’s a appear at what I commenced with previous 12 months: dated white cupboards, laminate countertops, an uncomfortable pantry, bulky upper cabinets over a peculiar skinny peninsula, old carpet and laminate flooring, and not a whole lot of storage.



The footprint of the kitchen stayed the similar, but I built sensible modifications. I made the peninsula further with cabinetry and moved the microwave there far too. I retained higher cabinets but replaced two of them with glass fronts.


I chose a chimney hood in the same wooden tone for a cohesive search. I contemplated a drywall assortment hood which is trending in kitchen area design, but chose to adhere with a scaled-down scale stained angled hood to distinction with the white tile.


I undoubtedly needed to shift that pantry so I intended the tall cabinets in the dining area to choose its put. I imagined the foreseeable future proprietor could benefit from extra storage so I extended reduce cupboards into the dining space as very well.

First, some kitchen area facts. I applied elongated matte black components on the drawers and doors, see supply record down below. I also included a small rail with hooks below the upper cupboards for extra utility.


The matte black faucet is contemporary and modern, mounted in excess of the solitary basin granite composite sink.


The tile is a textured 3×8” glazed ceramic in white in a vertical stacked offset sample from counter to ceiling. I have been seeking to set up this sample for a year and I enjoy it in this area. White tile is timeless nevertheless the installation feels fresh new.



The counter tops are 3cm calacatta quartz with gray veining mounted on both the surround cupboards and the peninsula.

When finding cupboard colors, the end on appliances is often a thing to consider, they have to have to enhance each other. Stainless, white, and black search wonderful, but I went out on a limb with this project and chose slate appliances rather. They mix fantastically with the wood stain and olive colour in the cabinetry.

I was going for walks as a result of Residence Depot glancing at solutions when I spied the GE Slate sequence and considered if I’m picking dim tone cupboards, these will perform actually effectively. The finish on these appliances is matte and feels muted and blended as if they’re receding in its place of hoping to just take the spotlight.

The cabinets are a blend of stained and painted in the kitchen, and all stain all through in the eating room. I like how the floating shelves tie the two areas with each other.


Here’s a different prior to and immediately after!
