This classic white kitchen features plenty of traditional design details such as inset cabinet doors, cup pulls, a bridge faucet and a white apron sink. Black quartz countertops contrast the white cabinets and white subway backsplash tile, which gets a contemporary twist with vertical rather than horizontal tile placement.
The island reverses the look with its dark brown alder cabinets and white, slightly marbled quartz counters. A built-in butcher-block cutting board made from maple and walnut adds a checkerboard pattern and ties in with the maple hardwood flooring. The custom alder hood matches the dark stain of the island and caps off a pleasant cooking wall that features a gas cooktop with built-in shelves and two windows instead of upper cabinets.
