The former kitchen just did not fit this customer's style. It had builder-grade, white-painted cabinets in an otherwise, very-elegant home. To bring the kitchen up to the home's standards, stained cherry cabinetry was employed for most of the space. However, to avoid an overly-heavy feel, some of the perimeter cabinets were painted in a complimentary ivory color.
An apron sink of carrara marble, leaded glass cabinet doors, carved corbels, and turned legs all add to the elegance of the new space.
The existing brick at the oven and cooktop wall was retained to add a bit of old-world feel to the kitchen. But resizing the oven opening allowed for a new appliance and the addition of a warming drawer. The underpowered exhaust fan was replaced with a stainless steel liner and restaurant-grade blower to serve the high-heat Wolf rangetop.
