Aging in place was the goal of this couple for their new kitchen, but they wanted it updated to reflect modern appliances and their travels to Italy. They wanted it to uniquely reflect their tastes, while working super efficiently for them as they age. We created a design that incorporated every convenience. The cabinetry all have pull out drawers in them, or the corner lazy susan. There are also more drawers than you would normally expect, as the wife likes to bake and has her baking goods stored in the island and nearby. She wanted a baking center, so we created the island with the double ovens, low down for easy access, as well as storage drawers. There is a cooktop opposite, with a warming drawer just underneath. The microwave is above the counter, out of the way. The back of the island houses the cookbook collection, and the cabinets that make the bench in the breakfast room contain other hobby items. The counters and table are made from quartz composite, with specks of blue to pick up on the blue colors they are using throughout their home. The backsplash is a neutral diagonal tile, with a small decorative pattern of tiles they purchased on a trip to Italy. The butler pantry matches, and has textured glass doors. The refrigerator is flanked by an extra large pantry and baking pans storage. Everything is easy to get to in this kitchen.
