This Walnut Creek two-story house is home to a young couple with two children under 6 who wanted an open plan kitchen/family room update and remodel that would fit their needs. A cook’s kitchen, a large island, lots of storage and an open plan kitchen that flowed into the family room where the children played was at the top of their upgrade wish list. They chose beautiful white painted cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a lovely white quartz Cambria countertop with subtle movement. They also wanted custom cabinetry for either side of the family room fireplace to complement the kitchen cabinetry and new hickory floors throughout the downstairs. What they achieved is a family-friendly and elegant open plan kitchen!
