Mid-century modern meets functionality drove this redesign of a kitchen remodel in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood. To update the space, a wall between the kitchen and dining area came down to join the two, improving flow and allowing more natural light to stream into the kitchen. With the newfound attention and visibility afforded to the kitchen, the owners set out to complete their aesthetic goals in a way that honored the home’s original ‘50s architecture and reflected their own passion for the era.
Custom cabinetry lends a nod to mid-century designs with grommet pulls and curved corner details, while a solid glass panel backsplash and white quartz counter tops maintain a clean, current feel. The clear focal point is the custom inset linoleum floor tiles. An original design born of the clients’ affinity for the time, it harkens to the classic Charles and Ray Eames Dot Pattern so well loved among mid-century designs.
