Minimalist Miami kitchen

Miami Kitchen Gives Modern Minimalism a Fun, Creative Twist

With their recent remodel, the owners of a Miami home proved that even minimalist kitchens can have a lot of personality.

The home’s previous kitchen already used Snaidero cabinetry (the 1988 Contralto model by Giovanni Offredi Design) and the homeowners wanted to stay with the Snaidero brand but update to a more modern look.

So, for the remodel they chose our WAY cabinetry - a winner of the 2012 GOOD DESIGN™ Award, the prestigious design program of the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design.

WAY has a super clean aesthetic, which includes recessed channels in place of traditional door handles, fully integrated appliances, and recessed toekicks.  These characteristics - combined with a Reflect White High Gloss lacquer finish – make the new kitchen an almost quintessential expression of modern minimalism.

Yet, there is a twist.

The kitchen features a multi-color LED panel behind its white recycled glass backsplash, giving the space a new ambiance with every changing color. A remote control allows the homeowner to select the color they want to display to best fit their mood and if they can’t decide, they can even have the system alternate the available colors – for a sort of unexpected “rainbow” effect.

The kitchen was designed by Patricia Myer, designer at the Snaidero USA Coral Gables showroom, in collaboration with Alicia Balius of Luminaire Coral Gables.
