This was a spec home in a contemporary neighborhood, so the design team wanted to achieve a modern feel while still keeping warmth in the space.

Because this is a spec home, the design team really had to make sure that it did not look like every other spec home in the area. The team wanted this home to be completely unique to anything else around it.

The design team achieved a modern style home that did not feel like a spec home at all, but rather a custom build.

The homeowners love the warmth of the different textures!

The design team loves the mixture of textured melamine and high gloss.

The design team has been working with this particular contractor for a while now, and they love the quality and many options available from Showplace Cabinetry.

The design team loves working with this builder, he always wants his spec homes to look different than what you would normally see. They are always open to suggestions and the team really feels like this project was extremely successful!


This is a beautiful and inviting space. The way you finished the back and sides of the island with the products available was a nice touch.

This kitchen seems to flow well with the other elements I can see in the home. Well done.

The textures and colors work so well together. Photographs are well done! I love how the color of the bar stools and cutting boards adds so much warmth and coziness to the room.

Great flow and plenty of work space in all the right areas.

Nice way to use two-tone colors with different textures. It flows so nicely and looks like a built in wall. The camel color is a soft accent of color.

Yes, this is very unexpected. The large inviting island is my favorite element in the space, but there are a lot of thoughtful details here.

Love the mixing of materials here with the light cabinets surrounding the wood-textured cabinets. Nice contrast of materials here.

Great job on the staging!

I'm very wowed by this kitchen. I love the warm, modern design of this kitchen. The contrast of the lighter cabinets that surround the warm textured wood doors is unexpected. And the detail of the wood island is sleek, but not cold. All around a beautiful job and I love this one!!

You nailed the look.

Love this look and flow.

I really love the clean lines and simple door style.

Beautiful space. The wood look cabinets surrounded by the white is stunning!

The layout is very functional.

I really like the details on this design. Work flow is great. The highlight of the range focal point is great. Love the black barn door and brining that color over with the pendants over the island. Lines all work. Like the warmth of the stools and cutting board as an accent to contrast the mostly stark look.
