A Coastal Dream Kitchen

For five generations, the Oursler family has been building homes and crafting dream spaces like this spacious, Nantucket-style kitchen. Marnie Oursler of Marnie Custom Homes in Bethany Beach, Delaware, has brought another one of her clients' coastal dream homes to reality. Marnie and team bring homes like this to life on DIY Network's Big Beach Builds series. Marnie collaborated with kitchen and bath designer, Jennifer Gilmer to create this kitchen which features two large islands, perfect for entertaining and taking in the view of the ocean. Double islands in kitchens are becoming a sought after feature when space allows, as detailed in this article from Homes & Gardens. In addition to the islands, the white brick accent walls bring a level of texture to the space, while the beautiful brown wood-look luxury vinyl flooring helps balance the cool, white kitchen with a touch of warmth. Finishing the overall look of the space is HanStone Quartz Calacatta Gold quartz countertops on both islands and the perimeter kitchen countertops. Style and function merge elegantly to create the perfect beachside kitchen.
