Blueprint for Improvement:  A grand kitchen in Carmel



The owners of this 1993 home in Carmel’s Windemere neighborhood wanted better functionality and more room for entertaining in their kitchen.


  • Custom cherry cabinetry anchors the design; the island cabinetry is white, keeping the space light and airy.
  • The island is doubled in size, providing ample seating and storage.
  • A boldly patterned quartz features prominently on the stovetop backsplash and is repeated on the island.
  • The adjacent butler’s pantry was updated with the stained cabinetry and offers increased storage.
  • The new finishes blend beautifully with the existing oak floors.
