Here’s how:
Elements:
River Stone Floor
Rain-glass Insert
Tempered  Glass Partition
12 x 24 Porcelain Tile
Handheld Shower

Two Kitchens Two Challenges
     Every project it seems has its own individual set of challenges to overcome. These two kitchens are no exception. If you are a past client of mine you will probably remember the pipes we had to move or the windows that that had to be changed which made a big difference to the end result.  Sometimes we can just work within the constraints as we did here:
Kitchen one (top)
  • Added a small  center island and the tall cabinetry on the right wall.
  • The 9′ ceiling allows us to put    cabinets above the glass doors and the tall pantry cabinets to double the amount of storage
  • Very uppermost white cabinets    follow the line of the existing soffit.
  • Soffits do not have to be removed and in the case of the next kitchen – we are covering the soffit in matching alder and putting a crown at the ceiling.
Kitchen two (bottom)
  • Kitchens before 2000 were usually enclosed rooms we now love to hate. A 4 1/2 ” steel column was used by the client as support for the floor above so the walls could come down. Good solution – only we have to make sure the column integrates with the room.
  • The Granite we chose will absolutely “steel” the show. It glitters with mica in a sea of copper and black . This Brazilian stone just now being quarried because there is new technology extract it from the earth.
  • The open post and beam industrial look is further enhanced by the stainless steel appliances and warm glass back-splash.
