Chocolate Chef's Design

This kitchen was built for a chef who spends a lot of time both professionally and personally in her kitchen. There is plenty of custom storage in this space which was carved into the nook off of the existing kitchen. The overall job consisted of an island, a large wall of storage, and a cabinet for a new oven. We stained the oak to contrast with the existing cabinets that are painted black.

Wall Detail Closed - The doors are basic 5-piece with a flat panel. They overlay the face-frame for a clean look. There are so many doors and drawers that more detailing would have seemed cluttered.
