Contemporary Kitchen Makeover

The island, with a waterfall-style concrete counter, steals the scene.

Architect Chad Jamieson, with the assistance of designer Omar Gandhi, began their contemporary transformation of this kitchen with crisp white paint and Baltic birch plywood, which was used to trim the windows and countertop. On the concrete island, board-formed sides are rough and unfinished, while the top was polished, providing a mix of textures to contrast with the smooth cabinets.
