Everything about this Long Island, New York, kitchen is indeed Lovely! As part of a design team including A.B. Lake Construction, Bruce Spenadel AIA (architect for project including kitchen addition and other remodeling enhancements), Introspect Interiors (tile, granite, paint, lighting and fabric selection), I was responsible for space planning, window placement, cabinetry design, banquette and bookcase design, molding design and implementation of all. I wanted the cabinetry to have a sense of importance, a feeling of richness as the room was to have high ceilings and tall windows. Working with an existing commercial hood, commercial grade range and subzero refrigerator, I decided to forgo reuse of the stainless hood and instead used a wood hood and devised a way to panel the refrigerator to add warmth. With the hood as a center focal point, I used large scale cabinet doors and trims to create balance. The room also incorporates a table area that includes a wall of cabinetry with a banquette bench and bookshelves that not only allow for additional seating and storage but also add rich personality with cookbooks and personal momentos. Finished room…………..yes, rich and lovely…..
