Blueprint for Improvement: Midcentury modern-inspired kitchen


Built in 1960 in Indy’s Nora neighborhood, this home’s owners were ready to bring function and style to their kitchen, while preserving the home’s mid-century roots.

  • Maple cabinets in a warm wood tone with flat-panel door and drawer fronts bring a modern touch and a sleek midcentury feel.
  • Cambria quartz countertops provide a natural stone appearance with added durability and minimal maintenance.
  • Ceramic tile creates a grid pattern along the backsplash, echoing the geometry of the cabinetry and infusing the space with midcentury style.
  • Cool gray tones weaved with a hint of green balance the warm wood tones, providing visual harmony and a pop of color.
  • A window replaced a portion of upper cabinetry, helping brighten and open the space, while additional storage solutions increase functionality in the lower cabinetry.
