The Existing Kitchen
Designer, Dean Large originally met his clients as they came in to the Astro showroom looking to change and update their bathroom. They were ready for a fresh start and to take on the challenge of remodeling. as oppose to moving out of their secluded home in the woods. Once the bathroom was complete, it was time to tackle the kitchen. This kitchen was not necessarily old or worn out, rather a lot more traditional than what the client's taste preference was. Dean's task was to convert this traditional kitchen into a contemporary space that flowed with the rest of the home, yet keeping elements of warmth from the outdoors.
The New Design
Clean lines, luxurious finishes & precise detailing are the elements which make this contemporary kitchen something to admire. The open airy space is flooded with light from an impressive picture window which runs the entire length of the counter. A professional gas range is situated proudly under a statement hood fan done in a soft black; this stands in stark contrast to the icy glass backsplash. Cambria Britannica counters are throughout the kitchen bringing a sense of elegance to the space. The tasteful counters are atop of high gloss ebony cabinetry which alludes to high end furniture. The space features a prominent island with intersecting counters of Cambria and black walnut. Instead of the conventional pendant lighting above the island, a large cloud was built to create dimension without obstructing the woodland view outside. The wall of tall cabinetry features a built in fridge, wine column, microwave, wall oven and warming drawer. A large ebony accent section protrudes from the white and stainless to add further dimension and interest.
The End Goal
This purpose of this design was to transform the existing traditional space to a stunning contemporary design, yet still bringing in elements of nature indoors and flowing with the rest of their modern home. The kitchen stands out with its mixed materials, show-stopping hood fan and an island set for entertaining.
