Kitchen Islands / August 8, 2018 / Coline Perle.
Easy and accessible access to food storage and preparation areas are key to a successful kitchen redesign. The floor plan and space dictates much of what is possible. And you have to design with these constraints in mind.
The island counter is Purpleheart an exotic hardwood with a range by Dacor. The rear counter is sanded stainless steel. The stainless steel and timber island maximizes space with a secret hatch that opens to add extra surface area for food prep.
This modern kitchen update required taking out part of the wall, which completely changed the layout. The small island in the original kitchen does not encourage frequent use. The clients wanted an improved flow, ample space to cook and bake, and updated materials and appliances.
The house features a circular, marble-topped wet bar with Lawson Fenning Orsini stools. The entire home is fitted with materials that celebrate nature. The color palette of the kitchen brings the look and feel of a rustic cabin into an elegant, contemporary home.
