Natural Cherry Shaker
This project included an addition to the back of the home in order to enlarge the original kitchen, and separate the nook and home office areas to give them spaces of their own. The clients’ desire for organic and natural materials led to the choice of unstained cherry wood cabinetry in a shaker style. The design demonstrates a clear separation of cooking and food prep areas along with a distinct storage and coffee station area. Storage by the cooktop houses a large collection of spices. A multi-level coffered ceiling was added to the geometry to add architectural detailing to the space.
Countertops are soapstone with a natural drain board cut in by the sink. Tile is imported and hand-painted, and windows treatments in the nook were handcrafted by one of the owners. All appliances are stainless steel. In the powder room, the medicine cabinet and vanity are antique “finds” and the sink is sculpted out of natural stone.
