Kitchen Updates For a Large Island

Kitchen Updates For a Large Island

Design Style


For this large family, a large island for gathering around in the kitchen is a must. And for a transitional style that still keeps with the bones of this 1940's home, a ship-lap wall accent, backsplash in an updated version of a subway tile, walnut butcher block counter tops and both white painted cabinets and a very on point Naval Blue painted cabinets make the end result a very classic, slightly farmhouse kitchen.

By definition, this project was considered a kitchen update (most cabinets, appliances and utilities stay in place) as compared to a full kitchen remodel (all cabinets are removed, often layout changes some, etc.). The transformation however, looks like a major kitchen renovation has taken place. Existing perimeter cabinets are painted , both base and uppers, while the island is all new cabinetry made of frameless EVO Cabinets by Showplace Cabinetry.

We love, love, love the blend of countertops for the different zones of the kitchen. Brush Black Pearl granite just makes sense at the beverage center. Butcher block in the primary work zone of the kitchen says "I'm serious about my task". And the showstopping Cambria Swanbridge quartz on large island is best described by Cambria themselves, "A marbled background with grays and pinpoints of charcoal summon up images of the stony beach along Sully Island where pirates walked within sight of the Welsh hamlet of Swanbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan." Trust us, it is gorgeous!
