NH Modern Kitchen

This newly constructed contemporary home is nestled on a thickly wooded lot in Southern New Hampshire with stunning views. The home has striking black windows and doors, beautiful wooden beams and plenty of natural light. When creating a design for the kitchen we kept with the simple, clean lines present in the home’s modern architecture while adding warmth and character through the use of materials.ith stunning views. The home has striking black windows and doors, beautiful wooden beams and plenty of natural light. When creating a design for the kitchen we kept with the simple, clean lines present in the home’s modern architecture while adding warmth and character through the use of materials.

Inspired by the large posts and beams that seem to “frame” the space we designed a contrasting frame around the lighter painted cabinetry using gray stained oak panels. The intersecting lines created by the posts and beams are mimicked in the intersections found in the island design. The raised island countertop creates a strong horizontal line, balancing the beam above.

The clients love to entertain and wanted a large island to use when hosting. A wine bar boasting double wine coolers is found in a niche just off the kitchen. The concealed 66 inches of refrigeration and freezer storage was a must, as was duel dishwashers. An area near the window is perfect as a coffee station with a second sink. Flip-up doors above the wall cabinets offer extra storage as does the large walk-in pantry located behind the range wall.

The cabinetry is a combination of light tan and a warm gray stained oak on a classic slab front door style. The oak offers texture and warmth while adding a natural element to the room and nods to the forest seen just beyond the windows. Dark natural soapstone countertops and backsplash complement the dark tile floor and black window trim. A punch of drama, and fun, is added by selecting a custom colored orange concrete countertop at the island!
