Cozy Transitional Kitchen by Peter Salerno
NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Large Kitchen - First Place
Co-Designer: Jonathan Olesky
One has to do a double take to realize this isn't a restaurant, it's someone's home kitchen. With 2 passionate cooks as clients, the designers were challenged to create a kitchen that served as both a professional culinary experience and a comforting eating space.
To match the professionalism of the prep station, the client's are fully equipped with a commercial freezer and double commercial refrigerator, as well as a dishwasher next to the maple cabinet sink. Three appliance garages were created in the design for easy accessibility to large, heavy, oversized blenders and mixers.
Quarter sawn oak flooring covers the entire kitchen floor, and a coffered ceiling was designed to highlight the stainless hood and wall cabinets.
Accents like a small silver teapot and stainless steel mixing bowls keep the marriage of luxury and functionality apparent. With a kitchen like this, it wouldn't be hard for the client's to open up a small restaurant. For now, though, they'll just enjoy it as a family.
