“Our Family Working Together with Yours”
Design by Petzrick Chinn Designs
Our client really enjoys entertaining large groups of friends and family in her kitchen, plus her kids also invite friends over when they are home from college. The existing kitchen was sizable, but because of her love of entertaining, our client desired her kitchen to be on a grander scale, even more open and free flowing. She was eager for her kitchen to have the latest high-tech appliances and an updated aesthetic.
Construction began with the removal of two walls to increase the size of the kitchen area. Our client envisioned more countertop space so she could be actively involved in baking while at the same time carrying on conversations with friends seated nearby. Therefore, two large kitchen islands offer seating on the outside, while appropriate work aisle space is provided between the two islands for food preparation. Dual appliances—two disposals, two dishwashers, and two sinks—allow more than one cook to work in the kitchen at the same time. Incredible cabinet organization solutions provide the ultimate food and cookware storage. A butler’s pantry and a mini wet bar are located off the kitchen.
A lot of detail went into the remodeling of our client’s kitchen. The high-end custom wood cabinets by Kountry Kraft were hand painted. Some of the cabinet doors open and slide back into a small internal pocket built into the side of the cabinet to provide easy access. The cabinet door above the refrigerator flips up and rolls back, also to give easy access. The elegant countertops are of Mount Blanc Quartzite. A dazzling ventilation hood above the range is black painted metal with stainless steel trim by Vent-A-Hood. Behind the range the backsplash is made of ceramic subway tile installed up to the ceiling in a herringbone pattern. T.W. Ellis carpenters made all the graceful columns on-site.
Our T.W. Ellis team installed classic red oak flooring throughout, which ties the space together as one. The only other flooring material is the Edilcuoghi Antigua Series White and Dark Grey floor tile that leads out to the patio, providing a convenient place to put your shoes as you come in the door. Our client’s laundry room was redesigned as well.
