Luxuriously Stunning Kitchen Cabinetry
When this family moved into their new home, they inherited the builder’s kitchen of the previous owners. They knew it wasn’t going to work for them long term but also knew that they were going to live with it “for a while”. That “for a while” turned out to be 16 years. Those ensuing years gave them the chance to know what they wanted in a remodeled space.

A significant decision in transforming this kitchen was the removal of the peninsula that confined the space, restricted flow and created congestion. This greatly improved the traffic flow and opened access to the adjacent dining area.
A key feature of the remodeled kitchen is a granite topped work island centered in the middle of the room.
Replacing the dated builder grade oak cabinetry with stunning hand crafted DuraSupreme cherry cabinetry that is lightly hand-stained to enhance to grain of the wood defines the look of the room.
Removing the bulkheads allows the cabinetry to be extended to the ceiling providing additional storage space. Double stacked cabinets and crown moldings add to the overall finished look.
The homeowner’s cooking experience is enhanced with a Thermador appliance set that includes refrigerator, double oven, built-in microwave, 6 burner gas range top, dishwasher, and hood vent. The hood vent fan is placed remotely to reduce ambient noise while in use.
The back splash is 3”x 12” gloss tiles set in a horizontal brick pattern and is accented by under cabinet LED lighting.
A mosaic of polished stone randomly mixed with glass in polished and frosted finishes is a contrast to the backsplash and provides a feature treatment to the cooktop and vent hood area.
The cabinetry is packed with features including a recycling center, a tray drawer, a pull out bread board, roll out pantry shelves, a spice cabinet as well as knife and cutlery organizers.
