Behind the Project: Crisp + Clean New England Style Kitchen

Drawing inspiration from the serenity of the New England coast, the Newfields kitchen design features a calming color palette and a layout that evokes a sense of coastal living. Perfect for those who love to cook and entertain throughout the year.

A New Layout Brings in Light

When you step into this kitchen you are immediately welcomed by an abundance of natural light. By removing a wall and extending the kitchen’s footprint, the expansive layout and open concept changed the look and accessibility within the kitchen creating an inviting atmosphere. Adding a large window and designing with a minimal amount of upper cabinetry gives the space a spacious appearance. To keep the kitchen functioning beautifully all major appliances are anchored on that same wall, creating a functional work triangle.

Blue + White Cabinetry

The airy white cabinetry reflects all the natural light and creates a sense of spaciousness while the calming shade of deep blue chosen for the island gives this kitchen a signature New England feel. The choice of two-toned cabinetry offers a strong visual contrast and draws your eye to the exquisite design of the cabinetry. From the moment you step into the kitchen, the large island greets you with a place to sit, and a custom walnut wood top by Grothouse brings warmth and character to the space. On the opposite side, there is a workstation sink that makes meal prep and cleanup enjoyable. See more of the space by visiting the project gallery.

Space for Gathering

Designing a kitchen that had plenty of surface space for food prep was at the heart of this kitchen design. The open layout creates plenty of walking space and creates a natural flow throughout the first floor. At the heart of this kitchen, the island offers generous room for meal prepping, casual dining, and entertaining, making it perfect for both family dinners and gatherings.
