balanced and bright gourmet kitchen in Chattanooga home with cabinets painted Sherwin-Williams Grassland and floor to ceiling cabinetry


1. With a custom green paint inspired by Sherwin-Williams Grassland, the gorgeous around-the-room cabinetry extends to the 10-foot ceiling – a necessity for a beautiful yet functional kitchen design. Each of the inset, flat panel doors and drawers incorporate a custom framing bead, while polished nickel hardware provides the perfect finishing touch.

2. The cabinetry holds a few surprises, including a conveniently placed appliance garage to the left of the panel-ready Sub-Zero refrigerator. The appliance garage has been designed to keep the kitchen’s microwave, toaster oven, and other smaller appliances out of sight. This clutter-busting storage solution allows for ample counter space and a clean appearance overall.

3. Calacatta Gold marble countertops are a timeless, elegant choice for this kitchen. To further highlight this luxurious material, the marble continues up the wall to serve as a backsplash, creating a cohesive look. 

4. The kitchen provides two main sinks – one intended for meal prep at the island, and a second “cleanup” sink under the window with a panel-ready dishwasher to its right side. Flanking the window is tall cabinetry used for pantry space and glassware, with a Scotsman icemaker and beverage center hidden below.

5. This dazzling kitchen is bright and airy, due in part to the space’s thoughtfully layered lighting. The under cabinet lighting adds essential task lighting to the kitchen’s work surfaces – this can make all the difference in food preparation. Inside the room’s glass-front cabinets, interior lighting beautifully illuminates decorative pieces, adding ambience and style.
