Applegate Tran Interiors

We took a large kitchen that could be overwhelming and transformed the space to
create a sense of intimacy by using earthy materials like the wood beams on
the ceiling and wooden cabinetry and mixes of natural stones.

The other challenge is the request from the client to have a contemporary
approach to the design but making sure that it is still warm and inviting
for their use.

-Contrasting materials like the heavy blackened steel and granite were
with soft, natural materials to create a balance between serenity and
What is unique is the play of mix of materials in a variety of finishes
from natural sandblasted granite to a honed limestone combine with a solid
surface material Caesar Stone. The cabinets (cabinet maker-Mueller Nichols)
has two different wood combination from a lighter vertical Eucalyptus and
darker vertical Walnut (running horizontal on the cabinets) But the look is
subtle since the mix is still overall earthy, natural and tone on tone

The old beams in the ceiling were used. It was painted over the
years so
we stripped it down to the natural material and added cross beams to create
the grid patterns. Rustic cross beams combine with beautiful phoenician
plaster on the ceilings. Built in speakers that can be troweled over with
plastering so the speakers
are totally hidden in the ceilings.

Multi level islands to serve multiple activities from cleaning,
prepping, chopping and eating. Butcher block lower level for easy chopping
and cantilivered to create a more dynamic and sculptural quality. ce the
clients really cook in this kitchen that the list of appliances
for extraordinary. Pizza oven, built in coffee maker, steamer, double
convection ovens, 6 burner pro style cooktop, 48 inch refrigerator, 2
refrigerator drawers, 2 dishwashers, wine refrigerators etc...

Contrasting materials like the heavy dark steel and granite were used with soft, natural materials to create a balance between serenity and masculinity. The seamless windows highlight and connect the indoor and outdoor living spaces. The clients are gourmet cooks that enjoy entertaining and cooking so many types of cooking equipments like a six burner cook top with grill, a brick oven and a speed oven as well as a pantry that is connected to the kitchen were used. There are also two islands in the kitchen which serves different functions. One is used mainly for prepping and cleaning while the other is used as a serving area and a place to gather.

Every inch of space in the kitchen is integrated with each other which leaves no room for error and presents a flawless design execution.

It is a product call Spekva and very durable and meant to cut on and my clients have had it for 3 years since this kitchen was completed.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheridan Interiors, Kitchens and Baths added this to Kitchen Luxuries: The Wood-Fired Pizza Oven
Wood-fired ovens require careful planning and meticulous attention to detail. They require a concrete base to support the weight of the stone around the oven, which is a project best left to a professional mason. The oven's interior should be made of clay-fired bricks to stand up to high temperatures and hold the heat well. The exterior can be made of any other fireproof material.
