In most houses, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is a place where people gather to eat, talk, laugh, and—most of the time—cook. Sometimes, however, the kitchen is something more. It becomes a piece of art, something to not only live in, but to admire as well. It fits so beautifully into the aesthetic of the home that you can hardly tell where the living space ends and the kitchen begins. This is such a kitchen.
This project wasn’t a renovation but rather a new construction, which meant that before the walls were even built, details were being ironed out to create a seamlessly designed space for both form and function. The kitchen was placed in the middle of the home and is open on one side to the foyer, and on the other to an expansive dining and living area. This layout creates a feeling of grandeur in the space, which, along with the tastes of the homeowners, lent itself to a more traditional design style. The raised-panel door, the black lacquer finish with worn edges, the decorative spindles and crown moulding; the corbels, furniture toe-kicks, and custom range hood—made by DJC Carpentry and Millwork, the sister company to Kitchen Fashions, and painted to match the cabinetry; all seamlessly create a traditional and timeless classic style. The marble-looking rococo quartz countertop, combined with the light grey tones in the herringbone-patterned backsplash tile, help to balance the darker cabinetry and bring some light back into the space.
Large windows on either side of the range hood , along with the open-concept design and twelve-foot ceiling, offer plenty of light, which is accented by the beautiful double chandelier pendants over the island.
This kitchen is loaded with hidden elements that allow the aesthetics to be maintained while keeping functionality intact. The two decorative spindles on either side of the cooktop pull out for spice or baking
storage; a microwave drawer and trash compactor in the island blend into the cabinetry and maximize counter space
There are pull-out trays in the pantry surrounding the fridge and the double wall ovens off to the side allow for large meal preparation without taking space away from lower cabinetry. The corner pillars which support the countertop overhang not only open for more hidden storage but also allow for plenty of room for seating. Overall, this kitchen is unique and timeless, ideal for entertaining, cooking and living.
