Minimalist Makeover

Second Place: Large Kitchen

Minimalist Makeover

Gone are the vestiges of the dated French Country-style kitchen that came before this clean-lined, minimalist renovation. Designer Sarah Kahn Turner kept the narrow space as open as possible for a husband and wife who both love to cook. She anchored the dual ovens and refrigerator/freezer at the far end of the space, making way for a central island with storage and workspace on either side. Double sinks create separate and efficient zones for prep/clean-up and cooking. A coffee station tucked into the pantry next to the ovens keeps the Caesarstone countertops uncluttered.

The material selection started with handmade backsplash tile by Heath Ceramics. Says the wife, a San Francisco native, “Heath Tile has a quintessential mid-century look—and it originated north of San Francisco, so it reminds me of great times with family.”
