Located in Santa Ana, this transitional kitchen design focuses not only on form but also functionality. The kitchen features a large footprint, which allowed for the inclusion of a significant amount of storage, including areas creatively hidden out of view. Many of the cabinets include pull-out drawers for easy access, and storage was added in every available space, without seeming crowded or cluttered. Some of the unique spaces used for storage in this kitchen include under the large window, in the corner that would otherwise go unused, and to the side of the refrigerator.
The fresh white cabinets feel breezy and timeless, and they pair beautifully with the espresso plank flooring. The overall color palette of this Santa Ana kitchen is centered around a classic black and white concept, which is seen in the granite as well as the clean, simple and understated black and white tile backsplash that runs to the ceiling above the range. A compact stainless steel range hood creates the feeling of a professional-quality kitchen, and the farmhouse sink is positioned to offer outdoor views.
The large island is really the central focal point of the kitchen, and it’s expansive enough for food prep, entertaining and thanks to the table-like addition it can also be used as a daily casual dining space. There’s a built-in wine refrigerator and above the island hang tasteful modern glass pendant lights.
Recessed lighting and cream-colored classic tile flooring complete this quintessentially California kitchen.
