Lets start the New Year off with a fresh start. And what better way than to share my neighbors’ major kitchen renovation which is spectacular. The kitchen and family room are the central focal points of the home which is now great for entertaining. They doubled the square footage of the kitchen, removed a wall to open into the family room and added a bright sunny breakfast area.
The palette focuses on the soft neutral putty custom cabinetry. Lots of details with contrast of materials were added which gives visual interest and architectural detail to the space. The rustic reclaimed barn wood looks original to the home, but also covers the existing steel support beam.
The large antique recylced glass cloche hanging lights define the custom maple wood island . The island has 2 refrigerator drawers as well as 2 snack drawers to make easy access for the kids.
The kitchen is retro fit with individual Thermador refrigerators and a freezer with twin Viking ovens in between. The homeowner chose lots of deep drawers as opposed to lower cabinetry. One great-added touch is the custom felt lined drawer for her grand mothers special silver. Hidden outlets underneath the upper cabinets are a wonderful feature which eliminates the need for the un-slightly outlet plates.
The counter tops are honed black granite and the chevron marble adds a unique back splash design.
The kitchen has an open cohesive feel, with stylish finishes, revolutionized antique lighting and modern everyday efficiency…..a kitchen lovers dream!
