The owners of this beautiful new kitchen did not ask for too much, aside from wanting a large 48” chef style range as well as a 48” refrigerator. They did say that they liked contrast, which is why the designer, Christie May with Rockwell Interiors, went with the two tone cabinetry and the glass uppers. She felt that these details broke up much of the monotony that was present in the existing kitchen. We decided to rotate the direction of the island, allowing for a larger island, larger sink and a better prep/cook layout with the sink and cooktop parallel from each other. We broke up the backsplash and put an emphasis on the large chef style range by adding a unique glass mosaic tile framed above. The new kitchen was also outfitted with some new features such as spice pullouts flanking the range, custom wood paneled appliances, pull-out trash and recycle bins, furniture-like legs on the island, and a custom pantry with roll-out drawer storage and adjustable shelving.
