Kitchen 8: by Tru Kitchens
The challenge in building a new home is to achieve a unique look, without offending design principles. The challenge was met for these owners by putting their trust in a great team. The team included the architect, builder, interior designer and kitchen designer. The home is built in a development with an Old World theme. However the clients were interested in a twist on the theme on the interior. They respected classic lines, but wanted a fresher look in the finishes.
To start, the base was built with a classic white kitchen, but instead of bright white paint, it has a touch of gray. The cabinetry is hickory, allowing for the grain texture to come through the painted surface. The quartz counters offer no maintenance. The Calcutta backsplash respects the finish influences from design long ago. The appliances are modern and mostly hidden. The dishwasher, refrigerators and hood are custom paneled. The range gets to be the star of the show, topped with the custom range hood. The microwave conveniently operates in a drawer style. The apron front kitchen sink throws to the traditional elements in the design.
The open pantry offers convenient and accessible food storage. The oak wood floor is a traditional wood with a warm finish that connects the gray tones in the palette. The mission was accomplished in the opinion of the owners. A great synergy in the team produced great options and results. The home that will stand the test of time from performance and aesthetic standards.
