For this kitchen design the homeowner knew exactly what she wanted, an ageless kitchen finished in an urban-farmhouse style.

By combining timeless standard white cabinets with a custom glass cabinetry feature and the bold move of the color of black, the modern drama—and undeniable edge—is born.

The striking black custom kitchen island and range hood cover, finished in Merit Kitchens standard Raven color, is the right amount of dark noir drama for this size of space. For a smaller space, consider only the kitchen island, or darker base cabinets to bring character into your space.

To soften the bold look of black and bring in the timeless feel they finished the base and upper cabinetry in white using a classic shaker style. This door style is popular in the Merit line up and is named ever so fittingly for this farmhouse style kitchen – the Prairie School door.

The black appliances also help to tie in the prominent and complimentary combination of black & white.

The must-see or must-use door hardware theme of this decade seems to be brushed brass, and it’s not slowing down. Some designers were leaning into it more during the late 2010’s. Since 2020 it has really taken flight.

Here we can see how beautifully the brass adds lively personality to the new space. With blending brass accents throughout, the charming urban edge farmhouse feel is complete.

Combining standard and custom sized made-to-order cabinetry will help create your dream kitchen space while optimizing your investment. Peace of mind comes standard with a fantastic warranty included.
