NKBA award winning kitchen remodel before its makeover


Design Notes: Remodeled to add extra light, work surfaces and storage, this kitchen now flaunts two French doors and a triple window, as well as a large island with work, storage and an eating area with plenty of seating. White cabinets and an airy neutral color scheme add to the lightness, as does open shelving to display the homeowners' pottery collection. With seven openings to this kitchen, traffic jams have ended and the room flows smoothly to the dining room and den as well as the outdoors.

Products and Materials: White oak flooring in driftwood stain; Adelphi Kitchens & Cabinetry custom cabinets, Thermador 36-inch Freedom collection refrigerator, Miele wall oven, dishwasher, and microwave and speed oven; Blanco Silgranit sink, Blanco faucets, honed Pietra grey marble countertops, Zephyr ventilation, Richelieu handmade hardware, Häfele dish organization system, Crate and Barrel stools.
