“The kitchen was an incredible transformation,” Bailey shares. “It fits the space much better now, and the island was a dramatic update.” Updating the kitchen was largely about establishing a better workflow. The straight and spacious island adds seating as well as a large working surface.
As Jackie Howard of Scarlett’s Cabinetry explains, “The updated linear design of the island offers added storage and really modernizes the kitchen. We also added glass-front doors to break up the white paneled wood doors of the upper cabinetry, which was such a nice option to keep the kitchen light and airy.”
The island is dressed in a custom stain on hickory and blends well with the style of the home. The stunning island countertop is a large slab of quartz, which looks strikingly similar to marble. “With the addition of a second sink in the island, tray and cutlery dividers in the cabinetry, as well as two different ways to store spices, oils, and vinegars, this family can prepare meals together quite efficiently,” Howard adds.
Nestled between white perimeter cabinets, glazed porcelain subway tile in the backsplash continues this elegant appearance, as does the custom fabricated and finished hood. Modern amenities, such as the pelletized ice maker, and other high-end appliances make for a functional space as well.
