A drop zone/mail center was incorporated into this kitchen. Mail slots, a built in tv, a pull out recycling can, charging station in a drawer all provide organization for this busy side of the kitchen.
Set in Saratoga Springs, NY, the kitchen was planned with a French Country farmhouse theme. We designed the kitchen with a balance of masculine and feminine styles to match the area known for its beautiful Victorian architecture.
Slate tile was selected for the backsplash to bring all the warm tones in the room together. Multiple countertop surfaces were used on the island. Thick wood with a live wood edge was used on the cooktop side and valderstone was used on the seating side.
Bumping out the sink base 3" and adding spindles and the arched valance at the toe space make the sink stand out. To the right, we have paneled dishwasher drawers and to the left, we have the double trash pullout. Bead board center panels in white painted cabinets add to the charm of the lake front home.
A built in booth seating area was added under windows and chairs were added to the other two sides to create a cozy, intimate eating area inside the kitchen. The groin vault ceiling treatment features a pendant light that hangs over the table and helps define the eat in area of the space. The exposed wood beams in the kitchen adds great texture and another ceiling detail on that side of the room.
White inset cabinets with a beadboard center panel was used on the perimeter of this remodeled kitchen. Sueded granite was used on the perimeter tops. The island is a stained maple that has a finishing technique used to make the wood look old. Walnut floors were used throughout the entire addition and remodeled space. Windows were brought down to the countertop so we could maximize the view of the lake.
This large greenhouse is actually attached to the kitchen! There will be planting beds of all sizes to accommodate fruits and veggies year round. This is the ultimate herb garden in your kitchen!
