EAST SIDE RESIDENCE contemporary-kitchen


GRADE took a modern approach to this stately 2,500 sq. ft. Upper East Side residence, completing the project in May 2010. With the objective to revitalize a classic space and manifest a new aesthetic identity for the client, GRADE's serene design provides a backdrop that reflects the client's colorful past through carefully cultivated accents and utilizes elevated modern pieces to represent a new stage in her life. The color palette was kept soft and feminine, with textured fabrics introduced to complement the welcoming oversized furniture.

I'm not the owner or builder but these look similar to Elmwood cabinetry. Uppers look like High gloss polyester. Very high end. Tres chic!

hi Shilpajcl... I'm not affiliated with this project, but we do these installations quite often, and typically the valve is located behind one of the adjacent cabinet drawers. Simply pull the drawer out to quickly access the valve.

why did you choose a gas cook top and electric wall oven rather than a dual fuel range

It is just personal choice...but...there is no gap down the side of the range for anything to slide down...easier cleaning
