Open Concept Kitchen with Island and Black Interior Doors

The renovation of this Nashville, Tennessee, kitchen began with opening up the claustrophobic floor plan and adding a large island for the young family to live and work around.

Finally, doors were painted black to add some drama and architectural interest to a space that lacked both things before the renovation.

Sleek, Midcentury Modern Kitchen

A modern, minimalist and midcentury-style kitchen with natural materials. The homeowner loves white and initially wanted an all-white kitchen.
