Just like our last project, this kitchen was very closed off, so we shifted the floor plan. The peninsula was removed, cabinets extended under the window, and a large island created an ideal workspace. It was also a bright space, with lots of natural light from the windows and atrium, so our client chose to stick to darker tones for a moodier feel.
Instead of building a breakfast nook for this couple, we found a drop-leaf table to place at the end of the island. And, by expanding the kitchen cabinets, there is plenty of counter space to be had for every endeavor
How many people do you plan to cook with? A lot of older kitchens are designed for a single person, but that isn't what many families need. We refer to this as a two-butt kitchen, and there is plenty of space for multiple people to cook together without difficulty
You don't need a traditional-style kitchen to enjoy butcherblock counters. This one was custom-made for our clients and the dark color suits this moody space
Slide-out shelves, deep drawers, and a pull-out spice rack all add to the functionality of the kitchen
We didn't only work on the kitchen, we also helped build a custom wine closet. This was designed specifically for our clients' wants and needs and it turned out beautifully.
We added a special arch to hold the stemware and add interest.
We also redid the fireplace surround and mantle. To create a cohesive look, the same wood was used for the mantle, wine rack, and butcherblock counter
