Cozy Transitional Kitchen by Antoinette Fraser

Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest: Regional Winner Award. The countertops are 2 1/2" thick, with edges designed to mimic the profiles of the moldings that were original in the home. Black Absolute Granite with a leatherĀ finish is used on the perimeter and honed Carrera marble is featured on the island. The backsplash tile is Calacatta Gold with grey glass accents and a mother-of-pearl border. Frameless white painted cabinetry frame the room and create a backdrop for the dramatic ebony-stained birch wood island which is made with flush inset cabinetry. I located windows to flank the range as today much more time is spent at the range than the sink. The client wanted paneled appliances which would be appropriate to the period of the home. I created two triangles consisting of the range top, paneled refrigerator and island sink on one side and the microwave, paneled refrigerator drawers and main sink on the other side of the large island. This was necessary due to the expanse of the room. The homeowners entertain quite often so the appliances would need to be top-of-the-line both in terms of appearance and functionality. There was no discussion as to my recommendations: I only specify Sub-Zero and Wolf. No other units integrate as well into the furniture quality design of cabinetry built today; and of course, no other appliances are better engineered to perform and last for decades.
