Classic Kitchen StyleTraditional Kitchen, Miami

This English Tudor architectural home combines classic styling, fixtures and fittings with modern convenience. The kitchen is quite large yet the client did not want it to feel that way. In order to keep some of the coziness she desired, we opted to put in a Wolf two hob electrical unit in the island where the cook spends most of her time. This allows her to do “quick cooking” in the mornings while keeping conversation going with her two young sons and maintains a galley layout within the larger footprint of the space. This hob also does double duty when entertaining, acting as a hot plate for service and an extra burner for prepping foods by the caterer. The Pro refrigerator was chosen to “lighten up” the heavier feel of the English Tudor design with some contemporary pizzazz. This unexpected bit of modernism along with a sleek Blanco faucet adds just the right touch of Wow!

The second island is considered the entertaining island as it helps direct the traffic flow in and around the kitchen area as well as adds some visual definition of the kitchen and breakfast area. Again,keeping it cozy and functional in a large space. This island is home to a subzero integrated wine refrigerator and bar sink. The large armoire storage area across from this island hides a working “appliance pantry” that also features a pot filler to fill the coffee pot! We included casual seating for the two boys at the main island and additional bar seating at the entertainment island. This use of dual islands keeps the kitchen from feeling too large. The brick alcove encloses a 48 in wolf dual fuel range with antique walnut shelves on each side. The alcove is a focal point of the design however it blends in with the surrounding cabinetry to appear as it has been there for decades.

    The NKBA recommends minimum of 42 inches. But 48 is what I would do in this case. If you make it too wide then you are making too many steps to work efficiently. Trust me on this one!:)

    48" is enough

    I have no earthly idea nor would I want to do this? Brick is a natural product!
