2011 NKBA Design Award: Open Plan Kitchens - Second PlaceDream Kitchens, Inc.Delafield, WIDesigner: Terri SchmidtCo-Designers: Linda Eberle, CKD, CBD, and Keven Schmidt
Design Notes: A Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home takes cues from the great architect's use of horizontal lines and natural materials to inspire a large kitchen suitable for entertaining. Double sliding doors next to the wrap-around wet bar and built-in coffee maker conceal a walk-in pantry and associated clutter. Multiple seating areas provide plenty of options for hosting guests. Varying cabinet heights offer movement and visual interest.
