The homeowners had a clear vision for their dream kitchen in Carlsbad, CA, which they worked to bring to life with Holland’s design team. They were seeking a sleek, modern space that combined both modernity and functionality, creating a space that was not only visually appealing but also highly practical for daily use.
Working around existing angles and windows presented unique challenges. Our design team and cabinet builders successfully navigated each of these challenges, creating a layout that maximized efficiency without compromising on looks.
To meet this overall vision, Holland’s went with slab contemporary cabinet construction and incorporated custom, soft-touch drawer and cabinet inserts plus shelving to enhance functionality.
The result is a kitchen that not only looks impressive but will continue to meet the needs of the homeowners and their guests for years to come.
The cabinets feature a rich wood grain and soft, earthy tones that add warmth to the overall space. Custom inserts, shelving, lazy Susans, and rollouts accommodate everything from tableware and spices to small appliances and pantry items.
Natural light floods the kitchen through numerous windows, contributing to its open and airy feel. The design takes full advantage of the available ambient light, creating a bright and welcoming environment. Meanwhile, the sleek and reflective surfaces of various stainless-steel appliances add a touch of sophistication while furthering the overall contemporary aesthetic.
The large central island features a waterfall edge countertop that gracefully continues vertically down the sides of the island, creating a “waterfall” effect. This design choice adds a touch of luxury plus contributes to the overall sleek and modern theme.
Integrated lighting also plays a crucial role in the design, adding both practical and aesthetic value. The lighting illuminates key areas, creating a visually dynamic atmosphere and ensuring that the workspace is well-lit for daily tasks.
