One of the reasons that I’m a huge fan of older homes is because they generally tend to have more architectural details than their newer counterparts. When planning a new-home build, it can get costly quite quickly when adding some of these architectural upgrades. But boy, they sure are pretty – like this beautiful blue and white kitchen by Crown Point Cabinetry!
The coffered ceiling is stunning and really stands out with light blue paint on the ceiling and bright white on the trim. I wonder if hubby would create one of these in our dining room if I show him the instructions from This Old House?
A big, beautiful blue range provides ample cook-top space and looks great, too. Most of us wouldn’t consider our range to be the focal point of our kitchen, but this one could certainly pass with those credentials. The tile work and plate rack create additional visual interest for the chef when preparing meals.
To the left of the blue range is the entrance to the dining room. Great use of space was made by adding a built-in China cabinet between the beautiful blue and white kitchen and the dining room.
There’s a cabinet on either side of the entry to the dining room! What a clever idea.
You’ll find custom cabinetry at every turn of this light-filled kitchen. Bulls-eye trim is added to windows and doorways, and toe-holds appear at the bottom of the cabinetry.
The builder even managed to create a butler’s pantry in this small space. Now that’s what I call a genius use of real estate.
The gorgeous kitchen island adds work surface for baking and prepping meals, and provides a breakfast bar for a snack or casual meal.
