This kitchen remodel was challenging. The old kitchen had an 80’s drop down ceiling and was half the size. We had to do a lot of construction and creative design work to open up the ceiling and the room to ultimately double the size of the kitchen. The new kitchen now opens up to the beautiful pool patio wich makes it perfect for entertaining. We wanted the hood to be a statement piece. The custom cabinetry was able to execute this with the milled design and applied brass moldings which sits beautifully over the 60” Wolf range. The fridge/freezer columns take on the look of a furniture piece, rather than an appliance as it is designed with the wainscot side columns and applied brass wainscot moldings. Quite the statement piece! We chose to do with less upper wall cabinetry, keeping it symmetrical with cabinet to counter pieces to the left and right of the range and keeping it open by the sink window. Instead of typical wall to wall cabinetry, we incorporated wall sconces to the left and right of the sink area. What a happy place to do your dishes! The farm sink has a very functional farm sink walnut base to catch any leakage from damaging the beautiful cabinetry. The walnut island is stunning and sits so stately on the black and white marble flooring. Classic, elegant and timeless.
This room was a bear to redesign. It used to be a cramped corner, dark and sad bar. The whole space was redesigned. Walls were removed and the ceiling was reworked. The bar is now centered as the entry off a grand dining room from the front home entrance. What a greeting to guests as they enter the specialty room to grab a cocktail. The bar was designed carefully with many appliances, though all hidden by the high gloss cabinetry panels. There are wine fridges, fridge drawers, freezer drawers , an ice machine and custom liquor pullouts, all hidden behind the sharp high gloss paint cabinetry finish. One of the best parts of the design is the custom brass inlaid applied wainscot and hardware. Even the hardware was designed to be inlaid into the brass. Sturdy, strong and echoes an antique sailing yacht vibe. The soapstone counters were carefully selected for their color and veining, especially as they were used in the backsplash design to overlay the antique smoked mirror with brass button inlays. The wall mounted Rohl brass faucet and the brass mirror wall sconces add the perfect accoutrements to finish off the bar. And the black and white checkered floor echoes a time past which fits the historic home effortlessly.
