Having the opportunity to work on custom homes is always an honor but this home was truly a special project. The location of this beautiful home was the inspiration to create not only a functional space but a home that could accommadate family, friends and guests with style. When designing the kitchen space we worked closely with the home owner to include modern appliances, beverage centres, display cabinets and multiple seating areas. The double islands allows for guests to be in the kitchen but not “in the way”. The addition of two under-counter refrigerators gives storage for wine and other beverages without taking away from the main refrigerator. Although, there are multiple focal points in this kitchen the primary eye catcher is the amazing full copper range hood! The use of unique copper finishes (custom hood, tile and bar sink) add interest, colour and texture to this 350 sq ft kitchen. The design of the backsplash tile incorporates the same design found in the range hood tying the little details together. One of the other interest points is the 54″ curved bar sink featured in the second island! The hammered copper finish brings out the amber tones of the granite. To separate the grand room from the kitchen we included a bar height cabinet with glass insert doors and cabinet gables, the perfect place to display collectables. The addition of cabinet lighting enhances the perimetre of the entire space giving a warm glow to this large space even when the main lighting is turned off. A great kitchen to spend time in!
