The Kitchen Wish List
“Both homeowners both had reasons to renovate the kitchen. His interest in gadgets and technology coupled with his passion for cooking got him thinking it might be time to remodel the kitchen and swap old appliances with new ones for an enhanced cooking experience. She wasn’t sure they needed to renovate but did regret that the existing island was positioned so that she could not seat the entire, extended family together for holiday dinners. They both found the kitchen dark and lacking in appropriate storage. With their list of concerns in mind, we got to work!” – Lydia
Their dream included indulging in a Provence Blue La Cornue Range that is dual fuel with swing doors. An elegant backsplash is a gorgeous tile of Garden State Boho Hex design, so striking it resembles wallpaper from afar.
A New Kitchen Design Plan
“The primary work triangle was cramped into the darkest corner of the kitchen so we expanded the work area to more appropriately fill the room and looked for ways to bring in additional light. This meant moving and widening a pass-through so it looked out on the home’s pool and garden. We positioned the sink under the opening so our homeowner could enjoy the view while doing dishes. Centering the pass- through also allowed us to gain additional storage space in the upper cabinets and design an architectural arch that would serve as a focal point for the entire kitchen, something the previous design lacked.
To further expand the work area, Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer columns featuring paneled doors, flanked both ends of the pass-through wall. A Wolf induction range was positioned on an opposing wall and a large wood hood over the range offered reliable venting and visually balanced the space. Finally, strategically positioned glass cabinet doors and white, painted cabinets helped brighten the room.” – Lydia
