Unique Stone Kitchen Design
Peter Salerno Inc.‘s recent Instagram posts prove that point to dramatic effect. These kitchen design photos feature what can be done with a home’s second kitchen to make a neutrally-based design pop with dramatic design elements and intriguing materials.
The defining feature of this kitchen design is the arched ceiling, with intricate exposed brick blending beautifully into the large stone backsplash on the kitchen’s feature wall. The simple neutral color of the brick and stone surfaces allow other areas of the kitchen to stand out; the gorgeous arc of the ceiling is dramatic enough by itself. The exposed brick extends down the side wall of the kitchen down to the countertops.
The simple, transitional angles on the custom range hood complement the ceiling’s arc nicely. The accompanying stainless steel kitchen appliances echo the finish of the custom range hood and add a touch of modernity to the brick and stone around them.
The countertops seem simple at first; upon closer inspection, they are finely crafted concrete wood form tops. The finished countertops provide both the rustic feel of weathered wood and the durability of concrete.
The neutral grays and whites of the brick, stone and concrete surfaces allow the simplicity of beautiful butternut cabinetry to shine in this kitchen design. The glass fronts of the warm cabinetry provide a look inside for easy access, as well as copious reflective surfaces for the ambient light coming from the large picture window on the refrigerator wall.
Peter Salerno mentions in the above post that a second kitchen should provide “only the necessities you need”. There are no opulent features, no exorbitant appliances, and generally no frills in this kitchen design. As stated above, this kitchen design is proof that luxury is not always defined by “bells and whistles”. A straightforward approach with an eye on form, function and intriguing design materials can create an understated, beautiful result.
