White Kitchen Inspirations

Here are a few ideas on how to use white in your kitchen. All surfaces in these featured projects were fabricated and installed by Surface One. Ready for an update?

White Quartz Countertops

The stunning white quartz countertops in this recently remodeled kitchen are Calcutta Gold quartz countertops by Silestone. These quartz countertops have a grey and white pattern that emulates marble, while providing the functionality of a quartz product. 

Quartz countertops are non-porous which makes them stain resistant and bacteria resistant. They are also impact and scratch resistant. Quartz is a great alternative for kitchen countertops if you are concerned about maintaining marble.

Lauren Brown of Twin Construction choose to complement the white quartz countertops with white island cabinets and a white subway tile backsplash while contrasting deep blue wall cabinets and vent hood add a dramatic punch of color to the room.

5 Kitchen Design Trends for 2019

Whether you are considering building a new home or thinking about remodeling your current home, here are 5 kitchen design ideas that are sure to still be popular in 2019. Ready to get started on a new kitchen? Make an Appointment with Surface One Today!

Open Shelving

Open shelving has become a very popular trend in the kitchen. Homeowners are opting to forgo upper cabinets to open up wall space for windows and open shelving. While this trend may decrease storage space, it provides a great opportunity to use contrasting shelving materials as an accent or focal point, and it provides a great way to display your favorite glassware and serving pieces. For the project below our client chose rustic wood shelving to complement the limestone countertops and white subway tile walls.

Vintage Vibe

Using vintage elements to accent kitchens and bathrooms continues to be a popular trend as we move into 2019. According to Interior Decorator Patrick Ediger on Elle Decor’s website, “We’ll continue to see traditional elements and forms in harmony with modern design in 2019. Think honed, natural stone, organic basalt tiles, hand wrapped rattan furniture and vintage-inspired fixtures and lighting.” In the project featured below, our client combined vintage style light fixtures and rattan furniture with marble countertops and backsplashes to create a dramatic design.

Single Level Island Countertops

Over the past few years single level kitchen islands have become more popular than multi-level islands. According to Decor Mag’s website, single level islands will continue in popularity because they “don’t block light, increase prep space, and create an unobstructed conversation and dining area.” Waterfall edges remain popular in a variety of materials including Marble, Granite, and Quartz.  Using our Slabsmith software and robotic technology we create smooth seamless waterfall edges, like the one below for a Mountain Brook kitchen remodeling project.

Quartz Countertops

According to Better Homes and Gardens, Quartz Countertops will still be super popular in 2019. “The shimmering surface is less dominant than other materials, so you’re unlikely to grow tired of it. Quartz countertops pair well with both light and dark colored cabinets, making them easy to integrate into any kitchen design.” The Liberty Park home pictured below featured Silestone Quartz throughout the kitchen and bathrooms of the home.

Blue Cabinets

Yes, you read that right, blue cabinets are a thing and according to Better Homes and Garden they will continue to be popular in 2019. Now, we have to admit that blue cabinets are not the right choice for every home, but one of our favorite design projects from 2018 included pairing White Quartz Countertops with Blue Kitchen Cabinets. Pretty stunning, don’t you think?

White Quartz Countertops Complement Blue Cabinets

Do you find white cabinets to be boring? Why not add a unique pop of color to your kitchen with blue cabinets. In this Mountain Brook farmhouse, designers Annie Bayer Goldberg and Ginny Monheit Maguire mixed rusting charm and modern surfaces with bold blue cabinets.

The designers balanced the brightly colored cabinets with Calacatta Classique Quartz countertops fabricated and installed by Surface One. The unique design included adding a curve into the edge of the quartz island countertop to accommodate a custom-designed curved seating bench. Open shelving filled with white china completes the casual farmhouse look.

Quartz Countertops featured in Downtown Renovation

Quartz Countertops featured in Downtown Renovation

“Downtown Looking Up” written by Cathy Still McGowin in the October issue of Birmingham Home & Garden details the exciting transformation of the 18th floor of the John A Hand Building. The building originally was the American Trust and Savings Bank Building and although the building has seen many renovations over the years, the 18th floor still had the typical look of an office space from the 1912 era. Staying true to the historic architecture while transforming this space to a residence was a challenge but Mike Gibson of Appleseed Workshop was up to the task. 

The beautiful living space is a mix of old and new. The home has exposed brick, original flooring and repurposed office doors. Walls of bamboo cabinets for TV, storage and display space, a luxurious soaking tub, and beautiful countertops of white quartz are some of the new elements that blend beautifully with the cool industrial look and feel of the space. The white quartz countertops installed by Surface One are Q by MSI in the color “Snow White”. The stunning views and the location add to the beauty of this lovely space. Surface One was pleased to be part of this downtown Birmingham project.

Cambria Quartz – Guest Services Desks

Custom guest services desks in the newly remodeled Montgomery Wind Creek Casino were fabricated by Surface One using Cambria Quartz. The mitered edges of the quartz countertops create a clean almost seamless design that extends down the sides of each desk to the floor. The deep black pattern of the Edinburough Cambria Quartz complements the vibrant metallic tile that it frames. Cambria Quartz is a popular choice for commercial environments because it is a strong, non-porous material that is resistant to stains and does not need to be sealed.

Cambria Quartz – Bathroom Countertops

These newly remodeled Montgomery Wind Creek Casino restrooms feature Cambria Quartz in Edinburough and Bellingham. The rich black Cambria Edinburough adds style and sophistication while complementing a bold black and white patterned mosaic tile floor. The lighter Bellingham Cambria Quartz combines creamy undertones with darker waves of black and gray, adding a visual focal point to the bathroom. Cambria Quartz countertops are manufactured to be resistant to stains and bacteria. It is an excellent material for high traffic areas, such as commercial bathrooms, reception desks and food preparation areas.

The “Joe”

Surface One is excited to have been a part of the birth of the new “Joe”.  The newly renovated Sewell-Thomas Stadium is a state-of-the-art baseball facility that seats 5,500 with several new upscale club and dining options. Surface One installed Zodiaq Quartz countertops and bar tops in the .525 Club and the Home Plate Club.

The University of Alabama baseball stadium was originally constructed in 1948 as the Thomas Field. It was named in honor of Frank Thomas, a former Crimson Tide head football coach. In 1978 the University of Alabama baseball stadium was renamed Sewell-Thomas Stadium to recognize former Alabama baseball player and head baseball coach Joe Sewell. Joe Sewell had just been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977. Over time, the stadium has been through many renovations and is fondly referred to as the “Joe”.

The .525 Club

The .525 Club is a new upscale seating and hospitality area on the first base side of the field. Seating is covered. The hospitality area is climate controlled with a view of the field and includes flat screen televisions throughout the club.

The .525 Club features a long Zodiaq Quartz countertop in the bar and beverage area. Surface One fabricated Zodiaq Quartz laminated edges to create a seamless transition between the bar top and the counter top. Surface One also fabricated and installed Zodiac Quartz drink rails along the walls facing the field.

The quartz countertops in the .525 Club are all Zodiaq Cloud White and feature a smooth 2cm full bullnose edge.

The Home Plate Club

The Home Plate Club is a plush club area located behind home plate underneath the seating bowl. The sports bar atmosphere features bar and table seating with flat screen televisions through out the club.

Surface One fabricated and installed Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz countertops in the kitchen and bar area of the Home Plate Club. The focal point of the Home Plate Club is a long seated bar with Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz. The bar is framed by large columns coated in brilliant crimson red mosaic tile. The food preparation and serving area behind the seated bar also feature Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz backed by crimson red mosiac tile wall accents.

Zodiaq Quartz

Dupont Zodiaq Quartz countertops are nonporous, durable and easy to clean. The Zodiaq surface is scratch-resistant, heat-resistant and tough enough to withstand the bumps and spills that are common in food service areas. Zodiaq Quartz is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUARD Certified® for children and schools.

Zodiaq Quartz is an excellent choice for serving counters, bar tops, food preparation areas and other public venues. Zodiaq Quartz is available in  a range of beautiful colors without the need for sealing or polishing.
