Sonoma Kitchen Remodel | Centsational Style

This most current kitchen renovation is in a household situated in the Sonoma Valley, surrounded by oak and olive trees, and rolling hills covered in vineyards. If you’ve at any time thought of a pay a visit to to the location, I suggest this posting on the ideal of Sonoma County.

I wished this place to echo its surroundings so the shades have been encouraged by the neighborhood landscape. I chose dim wooden cabinets in the identical tone as the oak floors and olive inexperienced cupboards to play off the trees that mature all all around.

The hues are abundant and conventional, but the space also incorporates present day touches these types of as marble appear quartz, black components, gold light fixtures, and open up shelving.


This kitchen is little, considerably less than 12 ft from fridge to window, so I experienced to be smart about appliance placement and cabinetry. I preferred to appeal to a large vary of consumers with the finishes and excess storage.

Here’s a look at what I started out with past yr: dated white cupboards, laminate counter tops, an uncomfortable pantry, bulky higher cabinets higher than a bizarre skinny peninsula, previous carpet and laminate flooring, and not a whole lot of storage.



The footprint of the kitchen area stayed the exact, but I built wise modifications. I produced the peninsula deeper with cabinetry and moved the microwave there way too. I stored upper cabinets but changed two of them with glass fronts.


I chose a chimney hood in the very same wooden tone for a cohesive seem. I contemplated a drywall selection hood which is trending in kitchen area style, but chose to stick with a lesser scale stained angled hood to distinction with the white tile.


I undoubtedly wanted to shift that pantry so I intended the tall cabinets in the dining room to acquire its location. I considered the foreseeable future proprietor could advantage from extra storage so I prolonged reduced cabinets into the eating space as effectively.

To start with, some kitchen area specifics. I employed elongated matte black components on the drawers and doorways, see supply checklist underneath. I also added a modest rail with hooks below the higher cupboards for additional utility.


The matte black faucet is present day and modern, mounted around the solitary basin granite composite sink.


The tile is a textured 3×8” glazed ceramic in white in a vertical stacked offset sample from counter to ceiling. I’ve been seeking to install this sample for a calendar year and I really like it in this room. White tile is timeless nevertheless the set up feels clean.



The countertops are 3cm calacatta quartz with grey veining installed on both of those the encompass cupboards and the peninsula.

When choosing cabinet colors, the complete on appliances is generally a thought, they need to enhance each individual other. Stainless, white, and black look terrific, but I went out on a limb with this venture and chose slate appliances alternatively. They mix beautifully with the wood stain and olive colour in the cabinetry.

I was strolling by Dwelling Depot glancing at solutions when I spied the GE Slate collection and thought if I’m choosing dark tone cabinets, these will function really nicely. The complete on these appliances is matte and feels muted and blended as if they’re receding rather of seeking to take the spotlight.

The cabinets are a blend of stained and painted in the kitchen area, and all stain through in the eating space. I like how the floating shelves tie the two spaces jointly.


Here’s a further ahead of and after!

A spectacular change, ideal?

My next kitchen area transform can take me to Florida to take on a totally different style. I’m psyched!
