Kitchen remodels usually find their initial impetus from one of two concerns, either a desire for a more aesthetically pleasing kitchen or a more functional space. During the design process these two issues become intertwined, and the resulting kitchen is a dream come true. Featuring beaded inset cabinetry, frame on end sides, decorative onlays, and French country legs this remodel presents an air of the welcoming old-world. The farm sink acts as a focal point with flanking legs and the custom hood features surface mounted lights that reinforce the country charm. Opposite of the sink the custom kitchen table serves as the main gathering place in the home. Featuring a built-in television and under-counter full height doors, storage concerns for the kitchen are met with a soft design hand. The storage on the wall is maximized, but varying the depth and configuration of the cabinets helps to avoid a large run of similarly designed cabinets.
The rest of the kitchen continues this even handed approach throughout the space. The refrigerator is built-in behind custom panels, and a pantry taller flanks it with interior pullouts. The toe kicks of the base cabinetry are adorned with valance toe effects which help to balance the multiple stage crown molding found above the wall cabinets. Further softening of the design is facilitated by the use of special diamond lite glass, a touch of antique mirror, and “Pewter” glaze on the cabinetry’s painted white finish. All of these Mountaineer WoodCraft appointments come together to create a wonderful and inviting cooking space designed to be shared with family and friends for years to come.
