"In any kitchen, the biggest design challenge is making it beautiful and having it function properly for the client. This client needed the space to function as a kosher kitchen, requiring features that mainly have to do with dish cleanup and storage. There was a lot to fit in because of the necessary duplication of things. The required meat and dairy separation called for separate sinks, dishwashers and storage areas.
"We split the cleanup area in half. The left side is stainless steel and houses the meat dishes, sink, dishwasher and storage. The walnut section is for the dairy dishes and includes its own sink. The pullout trash divides the two areas with a split-panel front. The stainless and walnut is a beautiful combination and makes it very easy to keep things separate-the client instantly knows where things are supposed to go."
