This kitchen with tired tile and cabinetry was overdue for a major transformation. The existing layout lacked functionality and closed off the kitchen. The 8' ceiling further created a cramped feeling. The design solution included raising the ceiling to 9' and opening up the plan with a center island and bar seating. The structural header had to stay and became a design element when wrapped in beautiful rift white oak with cherry detail. The cook top was relocated to the back wall and became a focal point with the custom Venetian plaster hood and hammered copper band. Tempered glass accent tile and soapstone counters created a striking contrast with the subway frame field tile. A combination palette of rift white oak and cherry cabinetry was designed to compliment each other with bronze accent hardware. Then finish result is a modern, functional kitchen design with rich detailed materials and finishes.
