At-Home Chef's Delight, a Classic Kitchen Remodel

 
This cozy kitchen fits right in with this style of this expansion Cape-Cod home. Designed by Heidi Huddleston, CKD of Delicious Kitchens & Interiors the combination of warm finishes on the Plain & Fancy Cabinetry blends in beautifully with the homes interior. High-performance stainless steel appliances share center stage. The space functions ideally for the fun couple who live here with their two dogs. They love to cook, entertain frequently and enjoy meals with their visiting adult kids and extended family. The fabrics, window treatments, lighting, fixtures and tile were selected by the collaboration of designers which included L. Newman Associates, JR Langley, RE Marble and Granite, Inc among others.

At Home Chef's Delight

The rolling island can serve as prep space or diner table in this open concept kitchen. Pantry storage and laundry are hidden in the adjacent space and the wine bar has refrigerated storage and display space. The door shown on the left goes out to the deck, back yard patio and grill area while the entry near the bar and oven is for the family to use from the garage and mud-room.

Welcome Walnut

The "L-Shape" kitchen is compact and functional with every inch maximized. The refrigerator, range and dishwasher were re-installed after taking down a wall to open up the space for this renovation. Walnut was selected for the custom hood and beaded backsplash. Walnut was repeated at the island and corner hutch as well as for the interior of the book case and display cabinets at the wet bar.

Ready for Turkey

The six burner Wolf range is like a family friend. It was in the prior kitchen along with the Sub-Zero refrigerator: this hard-working duo were definitely part of the returning items. The generous hood allows proper ventilation so when things heat up in the wok or on a grill pan the air is quickly cleared. The narrow door to the right conceals oils and spices on a pull-out rack. Cook-ware is stored in the deep drawers to the left of the range. The 36" wide oven can hold even the biggest of birds so holiday meals are often prepared here.

Flip-out? NO... Flip-UP!

The flip-up door over the refrigerator provides storage for large serving trays and platters. The Sub-Zero 36" unit is built in with a book-case to the right.

Lighten Up

The afternoon light floods the space so it's a great spot for reading, however later in the evening this cozy nook offers a sweet spot to watch the news. The at-home chef can watch a cooking show from within the kitchen too.

What shall I cook? Let me consult my books.

The bookcase at the end of the refrigerator conceals the side of the appliance and allows a spot for cook-books and display area.

Corner Display Hutch

The "L-Shape" kitchen is compact and functional with every inch maximized. The crown molding is continued around the rooms' perimeter providing a cohesive connection for the different areas. Walnut was selected for the custom hood, beaded back-splash, was repeated here at the corner hutch as well as for the island and display areas. The closet to the right conceals the stacked washer and dryer as well as an iron and steaming station which is used daily.

No Whining: we have wine.

Adjacent to the kitchen this bar area allows the mixologist preparation space while being out of the way of the kitchen hustle. Wine is kept cool and the well-stocked pantry is concealed in the corner. Under-cabinet lights illuminate the back-splash and counter while the display cabinet is lit from within.

Sink with a view.

The custom sink base cabinet features a pull-out trash bin to the left below the drawer; this all made as one piece. The angled corner to the left features generous full-round rotating susans so storage is maximized.

Glass shelves for glass ware

The interior back of the cabinet features beaded walnut the same as was selected for the kitchen back-splash. This rich detail is seen through the seeded glass doors. Glass shelves allow the light to spill through crystal and glassware making it sparkle and shine.

Wheel right over.

The size of the kitchen prevented us from installing a big permanent island. Casters on the wood-topped island allow flexibility. The 2.5" thick walnut top features an Ogee edge detail and an oiled top surface. Delicious Kitchens & Interiors, LLC

Rock on...naturally.

This fun back-splash is stacked stone pieces but at a quick glance resembles wine corks. It was selected for the area behind the range and at the wet bar.

We've got that.

The corner pantry is a storage mecca with shelves galore and space for just about everything. Over-flow cook ware, oils and dry goods are kept here as well as paper products.

Looks Delicious

The homey dark granite has a honed finish which makes it seem less cold and modern. The under-mount single sink is a dark charcoal color (sil-granite) composite which blends in almost seamlessly.
