Stunning Modern Kitchen


Ashburn, Virginia

Architect/Designer | Michael Nash Design Build & Homes

Photographer | Michael Nash Design Build & Homes

The main sink area was placed below large windows that allow for views to the backyard. A major load-bearing wall between the old breakfast room and adjacent two-story family was replaced with a steel beam, creating a seamless connection between the new kitchen and rest of the home.

Large-scale professional appliances and a large island with prep sink, microwave, and lots of seating space anchor the design. Custom inset cabinetry, an exotic stone countertop, distressed ceiling beams, stunning mosaic backsplash tiles, and many more amenities add to the style.A double barn-style door in front of the pantry area sets off this storage space, which is nicely tucked away from rest of the kitchen. All the tile floors were removed and replaced with wide-plank distressed wood floors to match the rest of the home. A butler pantry cabinet area and a wine station/drink serving area were added to serve big gatherings.

From the Judges
The design flipped the dining room and kitchen, which is a much better location. This is a big transformation.
