- Walls were removed to double the size of the kitchen and open it up to views of the Space Needle and Seattle skyline.
- We custom designed bamboo cabinets to include wine bottle drawers, a step stool niche, a lower baking counter and translucent resin panels in the upper cabinets. (See Details under Cool Projects.)
- The Fritz Tile floor (tiles of marble chips in resin) offers a uniquely elegant look that is durable and resilient.
- This two-story kitchen addition is built against the south side of an old carriage house. The original half-timbering had been hidden by a chimney added in the 1950’s. We removed the chimney to expose the woodwork, which was still intact. It was incorporated into the new kitchen, creating a dramatic 21 foot high beamed ceiling.
- The custom cabinets are topped by granite slabs that had been in the Owner’s family restaurant for years.
- The Owner’s found the original stained glass chandelier in a local antique store. We had it refurbished and electrically refit to become a perfect complement to the new kitchen.
- The wide planked, dark stained wood floors are heated with a hydroponic radiant heat system.
- Timber trusses include walnut pegs, steel tension rods and over-sized turnbuckles.
- Hidden LED cove up-lighting illuminates the ceiling decking.
- Finishes include custom Shaker Style cabinets with green soapstone countertops and splash; beadboard paneling and 48”farm sink.
- Appliances include a 48” American brand commercial range; built-in, paneled Miele refrigerator and microwave drawer.
- This new kitchen was designed to feel like it could be found in the French countryside.
- The custom, paneled cabinets are painted pale blue to go with a multicolored, 24” x 24” French porcelain tile countertop. The simple white tile splash and white Viking range provide a clean, fresh complement to the cabinet color. The cherry floor and wooden prep table add warmth to the otherwise cool color palate.
- Decorative tiles behind the range and on the hood were made by the owner using a traditional Springerle cookie mould, making a very personal statement for this kitchen.
- Home built in 1970 was remodeled to open the kitchen to the dining room. The two spaces are separated by cherry wood cabinetry with a raised countertop.
- “Rainforest Green” textured marble on the upper counter is in contrast to the cream colored Corian of the lower counter.
Island Lake Kitchen
- Designed with the traditional feeling of a Shingle Style home, but is complete with modern amenities such as the SubZero refrigerator, Gaggenau pizza oven, and pro-style gas cook top.
- Cabinets are painted and glazed. Countertops are granite except at the island, which stands out as an accent with its colored stain and 4” thick butcher block top.
- The raised counter to the right of the photo separates the kitchen from the dining while allowing the kitchen to be open to the water view and to be a part of the family.
- New home within walking distance to downtown Bellevue includes expansive kitchen.
- Specified materials include cherry flooring, walnut Boos island top, Calcutta marble, subway tile, seedy glass in upper cabinets and Enkbold wood ornament.
- Windows placed high over the custom range hood admit daylight deep into the space.
Apple Valley Kitchen
- Traditional shaker style cabinets blend with modern appliances and metallic backsplash.
