A modern kitchen remodel located in Bend, Oregon, this design by Kirsti Wolfe and Karen Smuland Architects for Karen’s 1927 Tudor-style home was completed in the summer of 2019. A dining room wasn’t included in the kitchen’s original floor plan, which left the kitchen cramped and closed off from the rest of the home. The new additions opened up the kitchen with a dining area that connects the kitchen to the rest of the home. The kitchen’s modern white matte cabinets with Bronze Ashley Norton pulls compliment the walnut shelving and tile in this simple yet distinct remodel. Ashley Norton was also used for the exterior and interior door hardware in a medium bronze patina. Karen and Kirsti worked diligently with one of Chown’s senior sales leads, Robert Stephens, out of the Portland showroom to achieve the fixtures and hardware to complete the look they envisioned for this northwest contemporary gem.
