Designing for a young family with two small boys, this renovation took aim at the hub of the family’s home, the kitchen. A kitchen originally designed to reflect an old farmhouse kitchen, but was lacking in functionality and style. This busy family needed a space that spoke to their entertaining, as well as day-to-day needs. Plenty of beverage storage, custom millwork with functional organization, beautiful natural and decorative light, and a place for everything.
A counter-to-ceiling bay window was added to take advantage of the natural sunlight, and the pantry opened up to expand it’s functionality, with a sink and coffee station. The focal point of the room, and a beautiful contrast to the light, airy surrounding millwork, is the deep teal island with a luminous walnut top. It’s both striking and warm, drawing people to gather. Quartz countertops have an elegant look, yet are made to last. Together, these elements give the heart of the home an environment and feeling that is tranquil, light, homey and sleek.
To us, the most important element in a kitchen’s design is it’s function. For a family that loves to cook, we looked to give them instinctual flow, and materials that are functional and durable.
