Sleek & Spare

Large Kitchen - Award of Distinction

MAY/JUNE 2010

Joe M. Currie, Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens, Inc.
When Joe M. Currie of Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens was called on to update a kitchen in a traditional Rockville, Maryland, home the goal was to maximize storage and counter space while creating a visually arresting contrast between cabinets, countertops and flooring. The homeowner wanted a spare, uncluttered look, so two appliance garages were installed and plentiful behind-the-scenes storage was put in place. The black-and-white color scheme of flat-cut oak cabinetry and granite countertops promotes a minimalist vibe, while the style of the cabinets, with their frosted glass fronts, is clean-lined and modern. Walnut floors connect the kitchen with the rest of the house.
