Making a Statement with Graphite

The project started with an early 1980’s vacation rental on Kiawah Island in South Carolina. With its typical layout of closed off rooms, the new owners still saw great potential.  Multiple walls were removed and what was created was a beautiful open floor plan which suits the relaxed, casual lifestyle of the island.

Chris Mevers of Mevers Kitchens and Baths in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, was the cabinetry designer on the project, working with the new homeowners to create an open but still defined layout.  Chris pointed out that the long, wrap around island allows for the cook to still interact with guests, but at the same time keeps the primary kitchen work area separate from the rest of the living space.

The homeowners chose a neutral color scheme, using white as the wall color which creates the perfect backdrop for Dura Supreme’s Graphite painted finish used on the Breckenridge door style.  The rich, dark gray grounds the space and allows the cabinets to make a bold, yet neutral statement.  Alaskan White granite picks up tones from the Graphite finish and the white walls playing off both of them beautifully.  It’s the perfect palette for an updated space.
