When Caroline and Andy Roeser purchased their Houston home, it was done with a love of the neighborhood and a lot of vision. Its windowless galley kitchen felt cold and dated, so the couple wasted no time renovating it to become a sunny, open space. Tour how they made the transformation.
Pops of ColorPatterned fabrics in a vibrant ginger red enliven the white palette (and also coordinate with the Wolf range's knobs!), while two large-scale lanterns in a verdigris finish grab attention over the island.
Scene-Stealer Accent Because of the hood's central location in the kitchen, Allison and Erika wanted it to be a focal point. The cabinetmaker built the handsome white wood hood, adding custom metal straps.
Functional Layout A new U-shaped plan allowed the appliances to be repositioned, with the refrigerator now on an end wall. Newly added windows flanking the range flood the room with natural light.
Timeless Materials White cabinets, polished nickel hardware, a subway tile backsplash, and honed-marble countertops with curved ogee edges all give the kitchen an upscale look that won't become dated.
Efficient Pantry A walk-through butler's pantry now connects the kitchen and dining room, offering glassware storage, a wine refrigerator, a dishwasher drawer, and enough counterspace for staging during parties.
