After many years of planning, this dream kitchen has become a reality in the Leclair Home. In today's post, we're sharing all of the design decisions, materials and finishes, as well the products used to style this newly finished kitchen!
One of the key considerations when planning the layout for this space was the non-negotiable full-sized island at the heart of the kitchen. Since it's completion, the generous island has become a family favourite as it serves as a perfect gathering place for cooking and sharing meals together.
Crafted out of white oak and stained in a natural matte finish, the island brings a warm touch to this high-contrast kitchen. Topped in white marble with subtle grey veins, this island also includes slatted detailing, hidden LED lights, as well as integrated storage for the microwave and dishwasher.
Custom cabinetry throughout the kitchen disguises appliances and adds a personalized functionality to the space. Utilizing every space possible and maintaining ease of movement throughout the kitchen meant thoughtfully designing customized storage solutions.
Though considered shallower than the conventional depth for a pantry, the 12" cupboards, drawers, and shelves present functional storage and ample opportunities for keeping small appliances out of sight.
The custom range hood brings a soft yet substantial touch to the kitchen's back wall. Once an almost bare space, this wall now houses the plaster finished piece which is flanked by modern sconces for additional task lighting and ambiance.
Quartz countertop is brought up the wall to a small ledge detail where it is met with shiplap for the remaining height of the room. These subtle details add depth to the space and create unique opportunities for the lighting to interact with the various surfaces and textures.
Positioned above the island hang two large pendants that bring a feeling of contemporary luxury to the space. Their unique shape and brass detailing bring a moody ambiance which can be adjusted from bright to just a hint of light that glows from behind the metal collar.
To elevate the space and create a warm, inviting glow, integrated LED lighting is also found beneath the island and open shelving. These small details make a big impact and bring a space to a new level of sophistication when incorporated into designs.
With so many inquiries about what finishes and products were selected for this design, we decided to gather them all here. We invite you to draw inspiration from this project and bring touches of the Leclair Kitchen to your home by exploring and interacting with the material swatches below.
