West Seattle Contemporary Kitchen

This West Seattle family of 3 in addition to their Bernese Mountain dog Jack needed a kitchen that had something for everyone. This multi-tasking kitchen allows the cook their own space with counterspace either side of the professional gas cook top, a pull out knife drawer and a 3 drawer cabinet that houses all of their necessary sauté pans and pots not to mention the oven and built in microwave. The prep cook has use of the island with prep sink and wine refrigerator to keep the guests sitting at their raised granite eating counter happy while engaging in conversation with those working in the open kitchen. The prep cook and guests can also easily get to the 24” wide refrigerator or 24” wide freezer without interrupting the cooking process. When it is time for clean up the deep single bowl sink, dishwasher and pull out recycle/trash bin makes it an easy process. Even the dog has his spot for his food/water in an open floor area at the base of the family’s task area which holds keys, notebooks, needed grocery lists in addition to a chalk board on the side allowing for quick notes and displaying their son’s colorful art. For those who enjoy coffee, we created an area for all of their coffee needs which is also flanked by two 24" deep pantries with easy access pull out shelves storing all of the food and snacks. This contemporary kitchen sways to the warm side of colors with its Espresso stained cherry cabinets, glass backsplash in soft earth tones, creamy Chroma counters, hardwood Sucupira flooring and a granite counter pulling all of these elements into an angular accent.

Do you have other suggestions for backsplash for the eggshell quartz? - I have the same color cabinetry and the Pental quartz counters in Eggshell. I'm having a very hard time finding a backsplash to coordinate as the quartz has a bit of a greenish under tone. I'm looking for a natural stone or natural stone mosaic.

It's called Sucupira (it just had a clear finish) and is a tropical hardwood. It is very dense and it quite beautiful.

What size was the cabinet before the wine chiller was installed? - I have dual cabinets with a long divider (inside). I want to turn one side into a wine chiller. Drawer is 22inches. Most wine chillers are 15inches width. Also what's the type of wine chiller?

It is 24" and this model is from Marvel. If you were looking for something larger than 15" and smaller than 24", U-Line has an 18" wide wine refrigerator as well. Happy hunting!

The quartz is by Pental Quartz (in Seattle) and the color is Egg Shell and the granite on the raised area of the island is Giallo Ornamental.

These cabinets are from Canyon Creek in Monroe WA. They are their frameless series, Milennia in cherry with their Espress stain. The door style is Dover which is a veneer door. http://www.canyoncreek.com/

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Coffee Bars Energize Any Room
This cozy little coffee nook is positioned between two 24-inch pantries on the back wall. This space is approximately 2 feet in width. A coffee prep does not have to be large. Everything you would need is here: coffeemaker, mugs with sink and fridge close by.
