This kitchen gives a feeling of refinement and elegance. It’s timeless black and white design with accents of gold will never go out of style. The client wanted it to be a space that felt comfortable having coffee with their daughters but could also work to entertain their friends and family in style.

Sub Zero appliances were incorporated with integrated cabinet panels, so they had the convenience and function of a large fridge, freeze, wine fridge, and ice maker, but with the warmth of cabinetry and not stainless steel. The fridge and freezer are recessed into the wall and have floor to ceiling cabinet panels to create height, along with their own hardware style, making it feel more like a furniture piece and not an appliance. The custom hood blends in perfectly with the cabinets creating a seamless look on the range wall and letting the full height quartz backsplash shine.

During construction, we were able to acquire additional ceiling height which allowed the space to feel larger. A bulky drywall pantry was removed allowing space for a dry bar. This helped to open up the kitchen and gain square footage while staying in the original footprint. The “wood” tile laid in a herringbone pattern continues into the adjoining sunroom typing the two rooms together.

The details in this kitchen take it from “just another white kitchen” to something truly special. From the painted black grilles in the windows, to the 2” mitered apron edge on the island countertop, to the stunning pendants and vintage art all working together, this kitchen became a space that the clients never want to leave.
