Modern Farmhouse Style with Custom Built-In Cabinetry (Before & After)

This newly built home in West Clay was just waiting for the homeowners to add the finishing touches and their own personal style to the living space. The fireplace wall in this grand living room with high ceilings was a little stark, so the homeowners turned to designer Kayley and ACo to add custom built-in cabinets and shelves.

Taking inspiration from the rest of their modern farmhouse style home, the homeowners and their designer, Kayley, selected Merillat Cabinetry’s Lanielle square door in Cavern textured laminate for a modern touch. Rollouts inside the cabinets add the function storage every homeowner needs. Custom wood tops in black painted maple, with a unique thin profile at ¾” (2cm) were added to match the cabinets. Another nod to modern design are the matte black Key West pulls from Jeffrey Alexander.

Kayley also helped the homeowners source floating wood shelves to add warm tones and pull the look together. The ACo team pulled the electrical through the wall, and added black grommets blended into the tops to maintain clean lines but provide power where needed.

The finished project ties the space into the rest of the home, so it looks and feels as if it was already there. The space feels cozy and welcoming but takes advantage of the high ceilings and natural light to maintain an open, modern style.
