Matty Adler at Schell Brothers in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; won 2nd Place in the Large Kitchen category of our 2013 Design Contest.
While the client doesn’t really cook she wanted a grand kitchen that could handle entertaining.
The large space was so large we wanted to create smaller, intimate spaces within the kitchen. This was achieved by creating various zones:
• Zone 1 is the main cook area. This houses the range, refrigerators (2 30” fridges paneled and placed side by side)
• Zone 2 is the prep area between the two kitchen islands. Equipped with an additional sink and dishwasher, this space is located in close proximity to the main cooking area.
• Zone 3 is the bar/entertaining area. This space is equipped with under counter appliances, glass cabinets for glassware and is located outside of the main kitchen area as to not interfere with anyone preparing food.
• Zone 4 is display and counterspace. This area has glass fronted base cabinets facing the dining area to double as display cabinetry. In between is spacing for the grand-kids to eat while watching TV in the great room. Stacked above the wall cabinets are glass fronted cabinets that are lit at night to cast a warm glow over the kitchen and provide added display space for the owner’s collectables.
The kitchen was done in both Glacier Pewter and Espresso. The Espresso was done at each end of the kitchen on the bar area and the 60” of paneled refrigeration. This broke up the long expanse of white cabinetry and tied in with the espresso finish on one of the islands. The White Diamond Granite helped to pull the color palette together for a cohesive design in this very large space.
