Kitchen with Open Floor Plan

DaytonPainted White

CliqStudios designer Tessa Buhman worked with Steve and Katie Delchin on the design of their new kitchen.  The result was  a striking black and white open floor plan kitchen in a modern transitional style, perfect for the Delchin’s growing family.

 “Tessa simply nailed it on the design,” homeowner Steve says, adjusting colors to match the walls and flooring, blending white and dark cabinets beautifully. Over next month, he revised the design continuously, and Tessa worked closely with him every step of the way. She also designed the laundry and utility rooms for his new home. The striking combination of white and deep Carbon painted finishes created an effect unlike any Steve has ever seen. The black kitchen cabinets in the island, sink base and wood range hood reflect the color and style in the fireplace wall in the adjacent family room.
