Guided Tour With Captioned Narration
This beautiful Basking Ridge home had a kitchen that did not fit the character and quality of the other rooms in the house. A modest addition allowed room for a complete kitchen renovation. The new kitchen features two islands, a 48" stove with pot filler, a farm sink, island seating for all 5 family members, extensive moulding, a double oven, microwave and mini-refrigerator integrated into the main island and more. It was a wonderful opportunity to work with a wonderful client on a complete kitchen renovation in this Somerset County, NJ home.
Based on extensive conversations with the homeowners the idea for 2 separate islands evolved and was embraced. The center main island features a 3" walnut top with incorporated sink. The 4 island corner posts connected by valances to form the frame give this island a strong architectural look. The second countertop helps to divide the room in an unobtrusive manner and provides additional storage including an integrated electronic device charging drawer. The Ceasarstone Quartz countertop is available in a wide range of colors and patterns but we chose pure white to fit with the overall color scheme. Straight across - the porcelain farm house sink is flanked by elevated cabinets to provide more counter space. Further from the sink are two matching cabinets with glass mullion panels at the top. Both cabinets feature pocket doors that slip back into the cabinet. The cabinet to the right houses a TV and the one to the left is an appliance garage.
The full beauty and utility of the main center island becomes apparent in this picture. There are extensive storage opportunities, a built-in microwave oven, and small in-counter sink, The double oven in the back is flanked by the beaded inset frameless cabinets, and additional working counter space. Glass mullion doors allow for storage and display while adding an elegant touch to the back wall cabinets.
The custom wood hood over the stove is a centerpiece of the room and provides a strong architectural element to the overall design. The pot filler on the back wall above the stove makes filling cooking pots with water very easy.
This is an open, inviting elegant space with room for a family kitchen table beyond the 2nd island. The family says that unlike the previous home, this kitchen has become the focal point for family life. Kitchen classics not only designed and installed this beautiful kitchen we did it while working closely with the contractors that did the addition and the flooring. Kitchen renovations in new additions can be extremely challenging. For over 40 years we have been meeting the challenge of complex residential kitchen and bath installations, and we would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to discuss your kitchen project.
