A fresh, open and bright kitchen

When interior designer Meghan Price of Maple & Plum Studio purchased this Seattle home built in 1941, she was faced with an outdated space that had not been touched since the 1960s. The previous owner, a 99-year-old woman, had lived in the house since its construction, and now it was Meghan’s turn to take on the challenge of renovating it.

The interior designer, who wanted to transform the kitchen to reflect her style, also wanted the space to appeal to future buyers, in case she decided to sell the house in a few years’ time. Therefore, she tried to find a balance between a fresh, modern and, above all, clean environment.

One of the keys to the new design was to free the walls of the upper cabinets, paint them white, and add a front of meter-type tiles in the same color. To keep the whole thing from getting too bland, Meghan added different textures and materials, combining metallic finishes, with wood and vegetation, distributed over several floors throughout the kitchen.

By knocking down the walls that separated the food from the dining room, a new concept of kitchen was conceived, leaving the original oak wood floor visible.

The back door was also moved, leaving more room for cabinets and countertops.

Now the dining room is a bright area, which invites to spend long periods of time with the family.

After the reform, the kitchen has become a multipurpose area, perfect for informal dinners, but also for hosting a large number of guests.
