Our clients asked us to create a classic kitchen with modern appliances and conveniences. On the wish list were a comfortable nook for lazing with their morning coffee, added work surfaces for two cooks to collaborate, and highly upgraded storage options.
Custom cabinetry by TMK Construction, paint custom matched to existing house trims and natural walnut accent cases
Daltile Arctic White 3x6 field with Crossville GlassBlox feature tile above range in Sherry, North Sea and Ocean Air
Mediterra Cork, Mulch pattern
Benjamin Moore 1642 Cape Blue with accent 1671 West Coast in the Nook
Customized storage solutions include tuck-space with pull out access to the stand mixer at counter level.
Our clients love to hang out here with their morning coffee. The existing nook was added in the 70’s, and its dropped ceiling made it feel like an afterthought. We re-framed the ceiling and added skylights to create an open, inviting space. Adding banquette seating makes morning coffee cozy.
The main floor plan change involved moving the range to the opposite wall to allow separate work zones at the range and sink. To make room, we removed an old chimney and changed the double doors to the patio for a single door.
To maximize storage and return the cabinetry to a period look, we added continuous uppers over the window.
The powder bath received a light and airy update with a new glass shower surround.
We removed an unused chimney column and replaced french doors with a single door to the patio to make room for the range to relocate. We raised the dropped roof at the kitchen nook and added skylights and bench seating to create a spacious and inviting coffee nook.
