Crisp, Clean & Contemporary

Best of Class - Large Kitchen

Crisp, Clean & Contemporary A family inherited the husband’s childhood home in Potomac after years of living abroad. They decided to renovate and turned to designer Lauren Gagnon for help creating a modern kitchen. First, she enlarged the space by taking over a former den. This provided room for a large island with bar seating plus a breakfast area. 

The white palette is “crisp, clean and classic enough to complement the Colonial home,” Gagnon explains. Caesarstone tops the island and they selected marble for the backsplash, where they don’t have to worry about stains from spills or the stray magic marker. Stainless-steel ovens, refrigerator and warming drawer are installed in custom stainless-steel cabinetry for a seamless look.
