ROCKEFELLER Flat Panel door style
Cherry with the Port stain
With the existing kitchen built in the 1990’s, there were dated cabinets, appliances and limited function for the modern cook. A pantry closet on the side wall took up a lot of space, was not easily accessible and closed-in the kitchen making it less functional and leaving a “feel” of anything but welcoming. The old wall cabinets were short in height and left a lot of bare wall space above that collected dust and was not usable.
With 9’ high ceilings and the ability to remove walls and reconfigure the mudroom off of the garage entrance, I was able to really present a space that the chief chef could use efficiently and effectively and allow family and friends to gather and feel right at home. I didn’t want to take away from the beautiful crown moldings that carried on throughout the first floor, so creating a plastered soffit above gives it a continuum and really defines the kitchen. Angling the island with two tiers allows for better flow and function keeping the cook and the family connected, but each in their own space.
