Walnut horizontal grain kitchen contemporary-kitchen

Walnut horizontal grain kitchen

This amazing kitchen was a total transformation from the original. Windows were removed and added, walls moved back and a total remodel.
The original plain ceiling was changed to a coffered ceiling, the lighting all totally re-arranged, new floors, trim work as well as the new layout.
I designed the kitchen with a horizontal wood grain using a custom door panel design, this is used also in the detailing of the front apron of the soapstone sink. The profile is also picked up on the profile edge of the marble island.
The floor is a combination of a high shine/flat porcelain. The high shine is run around the perimeter and around the island. The Boos chopping board at the working end of the island is set into the marble, sitting on top of a bowed base cabinet. At the other end of the island i pulled in the curve to allow for the glass table to sit over it, the grain on the island follows the flat panel doors. All the upper doors have Blum Aventos lift systems and the chefs pantry has ample storage. Also for storage i used 2 aluminium appliance garages. The glass tile backsplash is a combination of a pencil used vertical and square tiles. Over in the breakfast area we chose a concrete top table with supports that mirror the custom designed open bookcase.
The project is spectacular and the clients are very happy with the end results.

Photo Permission? - Hi there, I'm working on an article for focusing on small kitchens and baths. While I can't tell if this is a "small" kitchen, I love the corner drawers and would like to share that as an idea for squeezing more space out of a kitchen design. Might we have permission to use this photo with the blog? We will, of course, link back to your Houzz site. Thanks!

Corner drawers - Great! - I am finishing up the design on my kitchen. Trying to decide between super susan or drawers - am leaning toward drawers as they are more unique. The design I have currently has stacks of 2 drawers to the left of the corner unit in question. The 3 drawer corner stack seems to have more storage and seems to give more usable space, however the two stack would align with the other drawers. I could do either and it would most likely look good, however - would aligning with the other drawers look more sleek or does it matter? (Just want to pick your design brain - I'm getting down to details and it is making me crazy!) Thanks for any advice!

The alignment would be important to me. If you look at another one of my designs you will see that I used 2 drawers in the corner to keep in line with everything. These make the drawers extra deep which is good for appliances or large pasta pots. Regards, Susan

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Brook loves to put corner drawers in a kitchen. Not only do they take up otherwise wasted space, but the corner allows them to be extra deep.
