Less is More: 2nd Place—Before & After

A makeover trades ’70s style for a sleek new look

This renovation of an outdated 1970s ranch kitchen bumped out the dining area toward the backyard and installed new windows to filter in daylight. Jonas Carnemark designed the space to reflect the client’s preference for clean lines and a less-is-more mentality. Despite its minimalist profile, the kitchen delivers plenty of functionality and storage. An island in rich truffle brown veneer offsets the peripheral cabinets and hand-blown glass pendants hang overhead. Built-in shelving, a microwave drawer and a Miele Combi-Steam oven ensure a seamless cooking experience.

Design & Build: Jonas Carnemark, CARNEMARK design + build, Bethesda, Maryland.
