Happy Friday! I'm finally feeling better and back to writing blogs! Today I'm excited to share with you another project I'm working on in beautiful Wachesaw Planation. The last design series I shared was for a remodel, this one is a new build. The homeowner asked me to design a beautiful kitchen because in her words, "It's the heart of the house and where we spend all our time!" I couldn't have said it better myself!
This custom home will be constructed next year in 2022 and will likely take about 11 months to build. Poulin Construction is the builder and will do a wonderful job.
The clients came to me with the set of house plans above and said they love to entertain and often have extended family stay with them. They need a large kitchen with plenty of room and seating as well as a large working pantry. We made some exciting decisions regarding the pantry design that I will share with you next week. Today I want to focus on the beautiful main kitchen design!
At our first meeting, wish lists and inspiration pictures were shared and a design direction was established for the project. Next the homeowner selected all of her appliances. Below is the list of requests used to create the overall kitchen design and layout:
large island with two dishwashers
storage for small appliances
undercounter wine cooler
60" wide refridgerator
48" professional range
36" apron front sink
Here are some of the inspiration images she shared including secret pantry doors! Yes please!
And here's what I've been working on shown in both 2D and 3D renderings. We are planning on doing a group of fun hanging basket lights over the breakfast table and of course amazing pendants over the island. I'll share the plans for a secret pantry door in next week's post!
The coffee bar is on the far left in the breakfast room. Two dishwashers are located in the island so clean and dirty dishes can easily be rotated! The wine bar is on the far right side of the island.
Here are some 3D images of this kitchen design. The materials are still being selected but I found this amazing palm leaf wall paper by Schumacher to go on each end of the kitchen. Can you say coastal modern?! The homeowner about died.... loved it!! Obviously this will be my starting point moving forward for selecting other materials :). Can't wait to share all of that with you soon.
Look for next week's post where I'll be featuring the pantry design for this project! It's a good one you won't want to miss!
