A fun, eclectic couple wanted to build a unique, steampunk kitchen style. Their idea was creative and totally original. It was unlike any design we had ever done. So, our approach was to think outside of the box. We were thrilled to work with some exciting new materials and finishes.
The original kitchen had a nonfunctional layout. It was tight and awkward. There were large soffits throughout, and there were also several broken appliances. But our client routinely cooks for family and friends. She spends hours in her kitchen daily. So, we focussed on functionality and, of course, beauty. However, we also needed to maintain the original footprint. So, we reconfigured most of the kitchen to improve the layout and flow.
We worked closely with a local metal shop. We had them customize a hammered copper and stainless apron-front-sink. The same metal shop also made the accompanying copper vent hood.
Our client loves brilliance, color and most importantly, sparkle! We honored this theme consistently throughout the process. We used unique materials such as antique-beveled glass-mirrored-tiles and glittery-gold quartz countertops. The crystal orb chandelier further complements the theme. The kitchen feature custom cabinetry in tricorn black. Notice the eye-catching, iridescent gold leaf detailing in the paneling groove of the cabinet doors. We worked with a local artisan faux painter for the cabinetry and millwork. We incorporated several cabinet accessories to optimize the cabinet space. The finished product spotlights a brilliant steampunk kitchen design.
Our client worried that tile would be too hard of a surface in the kitchen. Accordingly, we used durable and equally gorgeous LVT faux wood plank. We also installed it over a cork underlayment. This allowed her to get the softer flooring product she wanted without sacrificing durability. Our design included a tall freestanding island/dining table. We custom-built it to fit in the bay window area. The peninsula/island features a cool pop-up plug built into the quartz.
