A Baker’s Dream Kitchen
The kitchen in this 1972 Berryessa home no longer served the needs of a family that loved spending time together baking. The tired-tiled countertops, plywood cabinets, and vinyl floors had long outlived their lifespan; additional counter space was also high on the family’s wish list. It was our mutual goal to create a lively, baker’s kitchen with ample space to cook and thrive.
A NEW VIEW
By removing a partial wall, the designer opened up the kitchen to the adjoining dining room and created a large quartz peninsula that now gives the family plenty of space for baking tasks that they previously did not have. The cabinetry was designed with extra deep drawers for organized storage of dinnerware and cooking tools.
The Wolf Double Oven and Bluestar stove made the family’s dream of having a true baker’s kitchen come to life. The wall range hood above the stove, also from Bluestar, allows cooking odors, heat, smoke, grease and moisture to be filtered out; the family no longer has to worry about feeling confined in a kitchen with no ventilation. To liven the previously dull kitchen, quartz countertops by Cambria and Berwyn were placed in. The field tile surrounding the kitchen in the color “Surfside” creates a tranquil atmosphere. Finally, to bring this dream kitchen together, Eurowood Cabinetry in Rift White Cut Oak and luxury vinyl plank in Northwoods Oak were added. The white oak cabinets provide a warm contrast to the cool blue tile in this heart-of-the-home kitchen.
