As Featured in Annapolis Home Magazine

The current owners of this traditional Annapolis center-hall Colonial had already updated the exterior of their home to suit their more contemporary taste. With that taken care of, it was time to turn their attention to the kitchen. The hardwood Brazilian cherry floors remained, but out went the traditional white Shaker cabinets, and in came a sleek, modern space with up-to-date colors, cabinetry, lighting, and most importantly, plenty of storage. The homeowners, who favor European design and clean, modern lines, explain that “we wanted a very flat set of cabinets in a dark gray color. We wanted a generous island with no sink, cooktop or other obstruction, but since we live where we do, we wanted something that would also marry well with the style of design popular in this area.”

Changing out the old to the new was the project of Kitchen Encounters, led by owner Mark White and designer Cathy Terranova, with Brightview Builders handling construction and installation.
