Kitchen Design: Red White and Black to Inspire You

Red, White and Black Kitchen Design in Irvine, CA

We recently had the pleasure of renovating the kitchen of Dennis and Linda Taylor in Irvine, CA. One look at the end result, and you’ll understand why they were kind enough to name us “the most professional, detail-oriented, customer-friendly company [they] have ever worked with”. We’re eager to share our approach to this kitchen design – inspired by red, white, and black accents – with you today.

Countertop Material

Let’s start with one of the largest elements in the room. The peninsula features a Cambria quartz countertop: specifically, their Hampshire design, which draws heavily on brown and caramel tones with a swirl of whites and gold. This is a very warm and inviting material, and lends itself well to this particular kitchen design. It’s the perfect tone and texture to offset the traditional features of the cabinets and colored accents.

Red, White, and Black Create a Cohesive Style

Stepping back, you’ll notice the entire space is defined in reds, whites and black. Red is a powerful and lively color that exudes warmth and energy, while white paired with black is timeless and traditional – the resulting interaction is simply elegant, and encourages guests to linger and chat. Hanging pendant lights provide soft illumination and an anchor of traditional grace.

To get this lighting look, check out these hanging pendant lights from our friends at Lights Online.

Cabinet Style and Color

Between the wraparound countertop, windowed doors, and abundant natural light, this room emphasizes openness and flow. Maple is the ideal wood for such a kitchen, and that’s what these cabinets are composed of. The doors are our Heritage style, which – with its solid, sturdy composition and traditional elegance – brings a classic panache into any space. Searching for a similarly classic hue, we landed on the timeless off-white tones of Alabaster for the cabinets.
