Custom Kitchen with Gray Cabinets

Gray Kitchen. When Michelle and Dale approached Heidi Piron from Heidi Piron Design & Cabinetry about renovating the kitchen in their center hall Colonial in Summit, NJ, they wanted to open it into a family room and breakfast area. With three children -- a son in college, a daughter in high school and a son in middle school -- the household is a whirl of activity. As with the other more public spaces in the house, they wanted the kitchen to be quiet and minimal in feeling as a counterpoint to their busy, "gear-and-stuff-filled lives," as Michelle described it. Michelle's design aesthetic is a blend of traditional and contemporary. She gravitates towards the antique and the artisanal, which Heidi incorporated in this custom gray kitchen.

Custom Kitchen with Gray Cabinets

Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter Grey Kitchen. Kitchen cabinet paint color and finish: It is a custom gray similar to Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. It is a light gray with warm undertones and was chosen as a traditional alternative to white. Rather than having the color factory sprayed, the interior designer used a milk paint finish, since it is hand-applied and the brush strokes give the color more depth and texture. #BenjaminMooresReverePewter Heidi Piron Design.

Kitchen Backsplash

Kitchen Hand made tile. Kitchen Handmade Backsplash Tile. Handmade 4"x6" Backsplash Tile Extends to Ceiling: The beauty of handmade tile is in its imperfections. Its wavy and uneven edges provide a more visually interesting effect than the standard, machine-made tile in the typical 3"x6" subway size. Adding to its attractiveness is the thick glaze that adds a soft luminosity to the room as it stretches toward the ceiling. The grout is a light gray for contrast with the tile. #Kitchen #HandmadeTile #HandmadeBacksplash #HandmadeBacksplashTile Heidi Piron Design.

Open Shelves Between Cabinets

Open Shelved Between Cabinets. Open Shelves: Functioning as a feature element to the kitchen, the open shelves pick up design elements in the family room and breakfast areas thereby, better integrating the kitchen into the design as a whole. #Kitchen #openshelves #openshelvesbetweencabinets #shelves Heidi Piron Design.

 Two separate work zones were created, prep/cooking and clean up area, so that two people can work in the space without bumping into each other.

Ghost Stools:  Bring a light, contemporary feeling to the kitchen and are a lovely juxtaposition with the vintage-inspired lights.

The refrigerator was placed out of the work center for easy access by family and friends and close proximity to the kitchen table.

Kitchen Countertop
