Bright kitchen with dark cabinets and white countertops

Project Year: 2017

Project Cost: $100,001 - $150,000

This Friendswood kitchen remodel by Randy Godeau of Bay Area Kitchens features rich dark cherry custom Brookhaven cabinetry by Wood-Mode, and yet is light and bright due to its extensive lighting plan utilizing all high-efficiency LED lighting. Low maintenance Silestone Lyra countertops reflect the light to bolster the brightness of the kitchen. Drawers in most of the base cabinets offer the most efficient storage in all the right places. The drawer microwave faces the breakfast area for quick and efficient warm-ups without getting in the chef’s way. Concealed angled power strips provide lots of outlets that are tucked neatly out of sight below the upper cabinets so the glass backsplashes are not chopped up with traditional electrical outlets.
