5 kitchens that Designers love



From small to large, simple to extravagant, the designers at Founder’s Choice have seen and designed many kitchens. Personal style, lifestyle functionality, and size all are components that make up a final kitchen design. Below are five kitchens our designers love for reasons that may go unnoticed at first glance. Get ready to be inspired!

1. The Rustic Alder kitchen

Anyone dreaming of living in a log cabin will certainly appreciate this design. This kitchen is the best of both worlds: a rustic feel without sacrificing modern amenities. It also contains many optimizing features within the cabinets such as a microwave shelf and an easy reach corner cabinet so that you can utilize as much cabinet and counter space as possible

This kitchen is on display at our Tumwater Cabinets + Countertops Showroom.

2. The Modern Farmhouse kitchen

Designers love this look for its simplicity and abundance of crisp whites. However, this kitchen stands out from all of today’s stark white kitchens with its mocha stained island. The contrast brings an inviting and warm feel into the space.

Wall to wall shaker cabinets allow for tons of storage, perfect for a large family that lives in their kitchen.

3. The Cherry Grandview kitchen

The Cherry Grandview is for the more traditional at heart. Strong, cherry wood cabinetry makes up this beautiful kitchen. A long island for guests, built in shelves for quick access to cookbooks and a recycling center that is out of sight all of the time. This room is built for entertaining and cooking enthusiasts alike.

As a rule of thumb, when it comes to kitchen cabinet design, the best designs are those that incorporate the lifestyle of the family living there as the foundation.

4. The Pearl Shaker kitchen

Just because your kitchen is small, doesn’t mean it can’t be the kitchen of your dreams! Designers love this kitchen for its great use of space. Glass front cabinets open up the room to make the kitchen seem bigger than it actually is. A large farm sink also makes clean up a breeze.

Light, continuous subway tile backsplash helps pull the room together, and elongates the wall to create more space.

5. The Nutmeg Comfort kitchen

For those who like to make a statement, the use of bold granite countertops and saturated cabinets brings new life into any kitchen. The combination of door styles add that extra touch of sophistication, slab doorstyle for the drawers and the classic shaker doorstyle for the cabinets.

The last touch of class is the drawer and cabinet pulls. The brushed silver on the amber stained doors add the final touch without the contrast screaming too loud.
