In a home that still had the original cabinetry that came with the house, the clients wanted a new modern kitchen to match their style and taste. These particular clients had a love for cooking, so one of their main requirements was to upgrade the kitchen to introduce a better cooking environment. Their wish-list included: new appliances, bookshelf for all their cookbooks, additional cabinets with drawers, a bigger sink, and the list goes on. Today, this kitchen is nearing 2 years old, and we still love the way it turned out!
The cabinetry in this kitchen was matched to a piece of furniture in which they particularly admired the look and finish. Now, we have a huge portfolio of door styles, so we were able to find one that matched perfectly! This kitchen features UltraCraft Destiny cabinetry in a rift cut oak, natural finish, and slab door style.
Our clients had a large collection of modern art, so finding a countertop material that complimented their pieces, while also achieving a high level of quality and durability was a must. The perfect match was a 3cm countertop from Cambria quartz in Bellingham.
Finding a unique backsplash tile to go along with their style was also a must. The search for the perfect tile landed us on a navy metallic handmade tile from Pratt and Larsson. The unique 3×8 sizing and linear installation adds that extra modern element to their kitchen.
The plumbing fixtures were also an important factor to consider when deciding to improve their kitchen environment. Some of their improved plumbing fixtures include: Blanco Quatrus sinks, Blanco CULINA™ Semi-Pro faucets for both the main sink and island sink, and a water dispenser from Mountain Plumbing.
The clients wanted a way to cover up their speakers in the media area without completely concealing them, so we selected some neat architectural panels. These Le Corbusier inspired panels from SteelCrest were installed at tops of the tall cabinets and do a great job of being both decorative and functional.
New flooring that was both contemporary and soft was also on our clients wish list. The floor tile that grabbed their attention was a 12×24 Daltile Exquisite in ivory. The 12×24 size gave them a contemporary look with a soft color.
Lastly, a kitchen wouldn’t be complete without appliances! All of the new appliances were from Dacor, and they include: a 46” Classic gas cooktop, 30” Renaissance double wall oven, 30” Distinctive warming drawer, and a 52” Renaissance ventilator.
We hope you enjoyed our kitchen flashback!
