A complete redesign and remodel of this classic kitchen and adjoining areas was undertaken by the talented designers at Roomscapes Cabinetry and Design Center (previously featured here). The kitchen in this classic home was nestled into the interior of the home with only one wall of windows allowing natural light into the space. A Rubik’s cube of design changes were made to grant the clients wish for more light, a larger bright friendly space, better functionality and organization. The homeowners now enter their kitchen from many points to find a new light, bright, functional family-friendly space.
Specific zones created in the now large kitchen to add structure including a wet/coffee bar (more details shortly), a kitchen island and a range wall flanked by two refrigeration columns. Finishes and cabinetry define each zone.
Perimeter Cabinetry: Coronado Recessed Framed Beaded Inset Cabinet Doors in Nordic White Finish on Maple.
Appliance Pulls: 10” and 15″ Pulls in Brushed Brass finish.
The kitchen island features a wood eating counter and custom posts.
The wooden counter is American Walnut. Besides bringing some warmth, the wooden countertop helps to avoid stains on the white marble during the meals.
Kitchen backsplash Persian White 4’ x 12” polished marble tile – similar here.
Using marble countertops on all cabinets, create a sense of cohesiveness in this kitchen.
Entryway Lighting: Serena & Lily.
Grey Kitchen Island Cabinetry: Dover Cliffs Finish on Maple – “Benjamin Moore HC-169 Coventry Gray” is a similar color.
This kitchen features a classic white kitchen hood. The trim gives a continuous look to the cabinetry.
Custom pull-out spice racks flank the range. These spice/oil racks are very handy and easy to keep everything organized.
The stairway now opens directly into kitchen (see right) and a new diagonal entry and post hide the required structural support beam.
Brass hardware compliments the brass detail of the chandeliers over the island, while the matte black of the same chandeliers comes full circle back to the matte black of the coffee bar.
The leaded glass detail at the coffee bar and the upper glass cabinets flanking the hood consist of true blown glass and lead pattern that match exactly the lead glass windows found at the main entry to the home.
Wet Bar Cabinet: Heiloom Black with Espresso Glaze – similar to “Benjamin Moore Onyx”.
Prep Sink: Hammered copper undermount sink Native Trails.
The black cabinet features crystal knobs in brushed brass.
Hardware: Pulls in Brushed Brass.
This completely custom-designed fold-down desk replaces the re-purposed office and it conceals technology and organizational storage when not in use.
The full built in is 84″ wide, the center desk area is 48″ wide.
The kitchen hutch provides an elegant space to display the homeowner’s glasses. The interior of the cabinet features a high-gloss finish.
The pantry was relocated to a former office and in it’s place the butler’s servery was expanded with wide openings aligned with the dining and living room for better light and traffic flow.
The cabinetry is a Heartwood Maple with a Pewter glaze. Backsplash is antique mirror.
The new mudroom was created by claiming space from a redundant second hallway.
The new entry was outfitted with brick floor set in a diamond pattern and intersected by wooden planks matching the pine of the kitchen floor. The brick runs into the mudroom for a durable and unique surface.
The new mudroom is wrapped in shiplap finished in a high-gloss white paint color and it includes cubbies, and hooks. Tall cabinet hides return air duct. Similar paint color is “White Dove by Benjamin Moore”.
Cubbies and cabinetry keep cold weather apparel and sporting and school gear, contained.
