Kitchen Remodel: Space for All

Remodeling this kitchen created a space that caters to the homeowners' love for entertaining. The remodeled kitchen gives plenty of room to the cook while creating a spot for guests to congregate out of the action but within conversation distance.

Thanks to the new layout created during a remodel, this kitchen is now entertaining-friendly. A peninsula with a raised counter attracts guests with a comfortable place to sit and chat with the cook.

But the kitchen isn't designed just for guests. Plenty of chef-accommodating features establish a dream cooking setup for the homeowners. Butcher block on the island, illuminated by a pendant above, works as a prep station. Storage space beneath the island top houses small appliances and cookbooks.

Double ovens ensure that there's plenty of cooking power so food can be prepared at the same time. High oven placement eliminates awkward bending and back strain. The drawer below conveniently stores pans and baking sheets. A flip-up door keeps the microwave out of sight when it's not in use. The neutral color scheme serves as a no-distractions backdrop for a collection of colorful antique Italian dishes; the decorative cutout echoes the shape of the corbels below the range hood.

The double ovens also free up space beneath the cooktop for deep drawers that keep pots and pans close to where they are used most often, a step-saving move. The custom range hood complements the design of the surrounding cabinetry; corbels supporting the hood and mantel shelf reflect furniture detailing found in the base cabinets.

Pullouts next to the cooktop organize spices and oils. Cabinets and drawers in a variety of widths and depths are suitable storing tools, cookware, utensils, small appliances, and food. Pullouts and other organizing tools ensure items are easily accessible even in the back of cabinets.

Besides the practical elements, the kitchen is a pleasure for cooks and guests with its attractive finishes. The texture of the honed Ghibli granite countertops contrasts with the glossy subway tile backsplash, accentuating both materials, as well as the cabinetry and fixtures.
