Dining, Coffee or Cocktails

The dining room of this home was also updated due to the Kitchen and adjoining space remodel. Continuing the wonderful warm walnut into the Dining Room, the panels were specifically selected so the grain did not match to create interest. Hidden "windows" from the Dining Room into the Kitchen allow for ease of pass through serving. The contrast of the silver leafed cork wallcovering behind the wood countertop repeats the cool vs. warm play of tones as seen in the Kitchen. The homeowner has several different types of coffee and espresso machines. The large doors to the right of the dining room cabinet open to reveal a wet bar in which she can either make an eye-opening cup of espresso or a delicious cocktail. A refrigerator drawer and freezer drawer are also fully concealed within the rich walnut cabinetry.

Hello. The beverage refrigerator is from Sub-Zero. You can go to their website: www.subzero-wolf.com to find one that is appropriate in dimension for your space as there are different offerings of sizes. This particular one was one that could be integrated by adding the walnut frame around the glass in order to integrate it into the cabinetry.
Thank you for your question.

This particular project was one in which the cabinetry was built specifically with appliances selected to be "panel" ready, meaning they accept a cabinet front in order to look built-in. The wine/beverage refrigerator is such an appliance as well as the two large drawers to the left which are refrigerator/freezer drawers. Yes, there are particular code and installation requirements for venting and so forth, but your contractor, cabinet maker and electrician all work together so that the installation will go smoothly. When selecting appliances, speak to the sales person and explain what your desire is for a built-in look or "panel-ready". They will direct you to the options you will have.
Good Luck!

This wonderful buffet also includes two refrigerator drawers, a wine refrigerator and a wet bar. It is not a freestanding piece of furniture but a cabinetry piece. It is made of walnut. The back side of this piece includes a picture rail for ease of hanging art.
Thank you for your question.

Hello! The species is rift cut oak. To achieve the finish, the oak was wire brushed. Then a white glaze was applied to hang up within the groves created through the wire brushing process. A matte sealer was applied. If working with a professional floor finisher, it is customary to request a sample for approval on the finish before work begins. Thank you for your compliments!
Thank you for your question!

These fabulous cabinets are made of walnut. We specifically requested that the grain NOT match throughout the space in order to create interest.

Hello. This fixture is from a line called Quoizel. I am not sure if it is currently available as this was purchased many years ago.

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Kitchenettes for Convenience and Compact Living
This clever kitchenette definitely falls in the convenience camp. A beautiful second kitchen, it's adjacent to the dining room and features a refrigerator and freezer drawer; coffee and other drinks can be served easily from it. The sink and bar area could have been fully concealed behind beautiful walnut doors too.
