What Houzz contributors are saying:
Separate refrigerator and freezer. Tried and true, the combination of a clean up island with a food prep and storage wall unit is functional and pleasing to the eye. Separate fridge and freezer towers frame the range in this kitchen to create an eye-catching focal point. Access from nearby rooms makes it easy to grab something from the fridge without interrupting the cooking process. The island holds the cleanup area, with two pendants to illuminate the workspace or eating area.
Jeff wanted a separate Viking refrigerator and freezer, which afforded Mattingly the opportunity to set up a symmetrical kitchen with unique workstations. A wet pantry is just off the kitchen to the left, near the refrigerator; a dry pantry is to the right, near the freezer. "There are three or four unique work triangles formed by this configuration; we planned it out so that people would not get in each other's way while working in the kitchen," the architect says.Countertops: Calacatta Gold marble; pendant lights: Meurice, Jonathan Adler; backsplash tile: 3-by-6 in pumice, Architectonics
Make mine an espresso with steamed milk on top. Flipping the previous kitchen's color scheme on its head, this stunning space has dark espresso floors with cream-hued walls and crisp white cabinets. The champagne-colored subway tiles are more glamorous than standard white and tie the look together perfectly.
