Guided Tour With Captioned Narration
This Colts Neck home in Monmouth County New Jersey underwent a substantial addition to make more room for a new kitchen. The owner of the home had a strong sense of style from her European roots and chose a European Country theme for the kitchen. Two-tone painted cabinets, granite countertops, a porcelain tile floor all come together to form the base of the kitchen, and then extensive detailing brings out there character and style that the owner was looking for. Modern amenities include a built-in microwave drawer and beverage center in the island, a copper farmhouse sink, appliance garage, extensive pantries, pot filler on the range, and a concealed dishwasher and double garbage drawer..
The beverage center refrigerator built in to the island is a popular design trend. The kids love the easy access to the refrigerator and it is a hit at parties. This mini-refrigerator in the island takes a lot of the burden of holding beverages off the main refrigerator, leaving more room in the main refrigerator. The microwave drawer is shown to the left in the island, and beyond is the copper farmhouse sink. These are frameless kitchen cabinets for maximum internal room, with a two tone custom paint and stain finish to give the unique antiqued colors to the cabinets. You can have state-of-the-art kitchens with regard to features while still maintaining a classic, aged look and feel we accomplished that in this Monmouth County, NJ kitchen.
The copper farmhouse sink is beautiful and functional. It is big - it can hold a lot of pots, pans, dishes, colanders, salad bowls and more, while make a strong design statement. It is an attention getter for sure, and the client tells us that her friends and family love it as much as she does. Columns flank the sink, custom fixtures compliment the sink, and there is a deep trash/recycling drawer to the left of the sink, and a concealed dishwasher to the right. This is a highly functional kitchen that makes it easy for the client to cook for and entertain family and friends.
A corner cabinet with glass mullion doors holds the chef's supply of pasta. The stove area includes a custom wood hood with decorative moulding, pull out spice racks immediately adjacent to the stove burners, and a pot filler to make filling pots with water at the stove an easy task. Decorative corbels appear to brace the upper hood while decorative columns flank the base of the stove. These design touches make the stove area feel deeply integrated into the kitchen design, rather than a stand alone isolated feature. Our designers excel at bringing all the different elements of a kitchen design into a unified whole - and that makes for kitchens that are not only highly functional - they are beautiful spaces to live in.
Decorative panels hide the large Sub Zero refrigerator, and custom handles add a decorative touch. The double oven can be key to coordinating the timing of larger meals. Decorative moulding and corbels enliven the design and tie together the two sides of the kitchen.
To the left of the custom arch are three large pantry storage areas. Storage is key in a kitchen to avoid a messy cluttered look and modern cabinetry offers countless storage options. Our designers will discuss your preferences and thoughts and offer solutions that meet your needs. This client requested a large amount of storage space and this design provides it. Also note the cutting board integrated into the island, and located right next to the stove area. This makes adding freshly cut ingredients to a meal cooking on the stove behind it very convenient.
The two level, wrap around counter on the island is a favorite gathering spot for the family. A copper sink and cutting board are very helpful in preparing meals, and cleaning up after. Custom tile work and a beautiful granite countertop add personality and color. The upper countertop is supported by beautiful corbels and the entire cabinet area is finished in an antiqued, distressed two-tone painted finish with a rub through effect to give the cabinetry an aged look.
