This heritage house was entirely renovated to suit the new homeowners taste and lifestyle. An old servant stair originally located between the kitchen and the family room was removed and allowed for more spacious living spaces. The family room was now accessible through wider openings on each side of the cooking area.
The white profiled cabinet doors, the island base detail, the ceiling design and the aged iron hardware elements all beautifully define the classic language that is repeated throughout the home. The cabinetry was arranged in blocks elegantly framed with 2" paneling like fine pieces of furniture partially recessed into the walls. This created a bridge detail which is a design theme carried through the rest of the house. The wood bar top sitting on the thick paneled legs was made slightly thicker than the countertop defining the eating area with elegance. The same white oak veneer was used for the interior of the glass door cabinets at the coffee area giving a furniture feel to this display area that became the perfect spot for the clients’ fine china.
The symmetrical cooking area was centered on the island and shows a large custom made stainless steel hood with matching shelves on either side that were designed proportionally to the professional size range top below. Unique storage niches for oils and spices were created in the drywall columns on either side both with shelves made out of the same quartz as the counters and the full height backsplash.
The cozy breakfast nook was beautifully design with matching cabinetry and upholstery with additional drawers for storage beneath.
