The clients wanted to update their kitchen to better suit their needs and they had a tight deadline: They would be hosting their son’s wedding in under five months! Bill was able to deliver a high quality design and complete the project in time.
There were some specific programmatic needs for this remodel: they wanted to be able to eat at an island, they needed a large continuous surface for baking, and they had a lot of china and stemware to store and display.
The first two needs were accommodated by a large granite island. A third of the countertop is cantilevered over the side to allow for informal dining. Note the wine chiller built into the island for easy access during dinner. In order to store all the clients’ china and stemware collection, the Holiday cabinets were brought all the way to the ceiling. Glass doors allow for displaying chosen pieces. The choice to use darker finishes is offset by the wonderful amount of daylight this kitchen receives.
Bill built in a few tricks to this kitchen — the cabinets adjacent to the double-oven are actually a broom closet. Also, built into the bookcase is a discreet charging station for all of the family’s electronics.Share post
