These clients love to cook, entertain, and host large parties. But their kitchen was small and outdated. The knew that it was time to optimize their home with a fully-updated custom kitchen. They have a large family including two huge dogs. We knew we had to design a unique custom kitchen to accommodate their lifestyle.
Our clients rarely used their dining room. The wall between the kitchen and dining room impeded the flow of the space and created a stale environment. Accordingly, we removed the back wall transforming the kitchen and dining room into one harmonious gathering area. In addition to removing the barrier to absorb the formal dining room, we also removed a built-in pantry to create the massive, open chef’s kitchen our clients desired.
At the center of the kitchen sits an enormous island/breakfast bar built around a 36” gas cooktop with a heavy-duty downdraft pop-up vent. The massive island also provides additional countertop workspace. We made sure to leave ample space around the island to promote ease of movement.
The kitchen highlights include beautifully finished custom-built cabinetry with gorgeous backlit glass-front cabinets and stunning marble countertops. We maximized storage with large pantry cabinets while optimizing functionality with pull-out organizers, a hands-free trash can pull-out drawer, and pull-out drawers for pots, pans, and cooking utensils. Additionally, we created a sizeable stone-front bar area complete with a bar sink, double beverage centers, and an ice maker. The built-in bench seating in the bay window breakfast nook offers a nice touch.
We constructed a custom, built-in desk area to utilize the space under the stairs. Then, we finished off the renovations by refacing the fireplace to complement the stacked stone in the bar area. The result is a luxurious custom kitchen that will make our clients happy for years to come.
