Black and White Modern Classic Kitchen October 30, 2018 By Stacey Ranieri View of the kitchen and great roomThis kitchen was previously walled off from the family room and dining room. By removing the walls we created a large peninsula and opened the space to one large great room. White shaker cabinets and quartz countertops are modern and classic all at once. The homeowner loves MacKenzie Childs so her black and white checkerboard tile floor and pulls reflect her inspiration. The stainless steel farm sink is spacious and sleek and ties in with stainless steel appliances. Shiny black subway tiles make a bold statement, especially with the framed marble and Swarovski crystal tile inset above the range. Crystal light fixtures complete the glam and feminine touch.Classic black and white checked tileView From the Family RoomCrystal pendant lights add a glam touch to the classic black and white theme of the kitchen.
