Light Transitional Kitchen by Carl Bruen

NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Builder/Remodeler

Co-Designer: Robin Bruen; Debbie Kerr, CKD

This sophisticated farmhouse style kitchen, resonating with the clients' house makeover, features elegant tones of creamy yellow and peppercorn, clean lines, simple cabinet and drawer faces, contrasting granite countertops with simple edge treatments, well-placed appliances and sinks, and energy layered lighting. The clients required the kitchen to serve two future needs for years to come: (i) aging-in-place features including wide doorways and aisles for wheelchair or walker, deep drawers with one-handed functionality, and several other features(ii) group home for a special needs teenager accommodating multiple cooks in an adult communal living setting. Overcoming several design challenges, this kitchen flaunts a simple and unfussy aesthetic, maximizing on the sprawling mountain and wildlife views. Removing multiple walls enabled a large and open floor plan, and a large island and eating area create the perfect environment for entertaining large groups. New electric and plumbing, fixtures, appliances, cabinetry, flooring, lighting and backsplash, combined with Universal design elements, make this kitchen as functional as is striking!
