This dining space in Pickerington, Ohio used to be a traditional room to itself.

The wall dividing it and the kitchen was torn down in order to enjoy the front and back views of their gardens. They rarely host more than one extra couple, and didn’t like the confinement of a dining area separated from the rest of the house. An open concept was born, with a contemporary style.
The custom built-ins feature a beautiful combination of wood tones which compliment the maple hardwood floors as well as the completely custom cherry cabinets in the kitchen. The concave display area and glass doors give, at first glance, a dressy feel from the foyer, but blends effortlessly into the kitchen.

The custom window treatments are all separate pieces meticulously designed, fabricated and installed to create a multidimensional look effectively breaking up the cabinetry without sacrificing wall space. Honeycomb shades were perfectly paired with the paint color.

Black leather dining chairs with stainless steel legs further accentuate the contemporary style. If you look closely you can see the black burnout pattern and stainless steel accents in the cabinetry. Black is a wonderful neutral accent whether your style is traditional or contemporary.
