Creating Flow – G.M. Roth
G.M. Roth creates a natural flow between an underused kitchen and dining room in a beautiful Danvers home. ( sponsored )
The kitchen in this beautiful Danvers home was underused because the layout didn’t offer an inviting work area and the space was inefficient. However, there was a great deal of space to work with and ample opportunity for natural lighting. Having done a bathroom remodel for this client previously, G.M. Roth Designer Terri Stevens knew her client liked to entertain family and friends. If the space provided the opportunity, both homeowners would use it more.
She completely redesigned the layout of the space. By eliminating a peninsula and adding an island running parallel to the window wall, she created natural flow and connected the dining area to the kitchen. Semicustom cabinets with Concord doors and white satin finish ran to the ceiling with multipiece crown molding and brightened up the space. The huge double-bowl sink under the new bay window was surrounded by usable counter space on either side.
The new six burner gas range was covered by a powerful external vent with make-up air and complemented with a double multiuse oven nearby. As a second work area, G.M. Roth installed a wet bar on the opposite wall with a beautiful built-in wine cooler and drawn antique glass doors on the upper cabinets with matching shelving and internal lighting. The bar area was framed with floor-to-ceiling pantry cabinets, offering copious storage space. Swirl cut handles in brushed satin nickel from Top Knobs complemented the cabinets nicely. The dark polished Via Lactea granite installed on all of the outer cabinets offset the white cabinets beautifully, and the dramatic polished silver cloud granite on the island created just the right pop. Snow subway tile with silver-shadow grout created an elegant but understated look and reflected the LED under cabinet lighting perfectly.
Three pendants centered over the island. Strategically positioned recessed lights and a new hanging fixture over the dining table ensured consistent lighting. All of the stained trim in the area was replaced with white-painted trim, enhancing the more modern transitional look. Hallmark Maple’s Rustler flooring ran throughout the space, tying it all together and offsetting the white cabinets with distinction.
