Transitional Classic

The main design objective in this kitchen remodel was to open up the space and create a highly functional kitchen for a family of five.  Homeowner specifications included dual sinks and dishwashers, increased refrigerator/freezer space, walk-in pantry, and eat-in seating.

The island serves as the main workspace and houses a secondary prep sink, auxiliary dishwasher, warming drawer and microwave drawer.  The lower level island seating area provides ample counter space and seating for up to six.

On the perimeter, separate refrigerator and freezer towers frame the sink area, providing plenty of highly accessible food storage.  Gorgeous patterned marble backsplash tile draws the eye to the walnut hood as a focal point.  A 48” Wolf range complete with dual ovens and stovetop griddle, as well as the accompanying pot filler, add functionality in leaps and bounds.  Two pullout base cabinets flank the range, one a spice pullout and the other a tray storage unit.

A large walk-in pantry separates the kitchen from a practical, understated bar area equipped with wine cooler and ice maker.  Tall columns border the bar and breakfast area, delineating space and reinforcing the classical elements present throughout the home.
