Nestled in a popular mass production community in North Austin, you will find a home with a very different kitchen. The clients, who love to entertain their large family, wanted to transform their ticky-tacky builder grade kitchen into something you would see out of contemporary New York loft apartment. The most dramatic change is seen when we removed the bar area and the column support. This allowed us to open the kitchen up to the family room. The cabinetry also was a major player in the overall design. Custom stained chocolate flat panel cabinetry was implemented to bow to the over all contemporary design and off set the green glass backsplash. The unique island incorporated two materials, quartz for the main area and rift sawn oak as the perimeter material. The client insisted that the material for the perimeter be different, so coming up with the solution that was both aesthetically pleasing and food safe was a challenge at first but working through the options we found the best look and option. The layout changes that occurred was moving the sink from the bar area to the back wall, placing the cooktop in the center and creating a baking station behind it. Moving the refrigerator into the space where the pantry once was and moving the storage panty to the opposite wall allowed the home owner to gain more work surface in the kitchen.
