Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly recently finished this elegant Long Island kitchen in Garden City, New York. The home has spectacular large-scale rooms and grand ceiling details. The client wanted the kitchen to fit the family’s lifestyle. All the details were selected to highlight different areas in the kitchen, giving the space a functional layout with the flow of their home.
Once you walk into this grand room, the coffered ceiling creates an inviting space by adding depth and interest. The height of the room is in proportion to the size of the kitchen. The large floor-to-ceiling windows in the eating area allow the light to flood into the room bringing the outside in.
We designed the kitchen for different zones with all the appliances a chef could wish for. The clean-up area includes the under-mounted stainless steel sink pulled off the wall with flanking post. Appliance choices include the Miele dishwasher with hidden panels, the Miele double ovens, the Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, and the Miele coffee maker. The Wolf cooktop mimics the details of the sink area. To create a focal point with the custom wood hood, we designed two valances to marry the hood to the flanking wall cabinets. The 700 Series Sub Zero Refrigerator/Freezer is cloaked with panels and a pediment above to disguise it as a separate piece of furniture.
The Brookhaven cabinets (by Wood-Mode) are painted with a glaze and include a raised panel door with a sub-divide panel to give proportion to the space. The finish highlights the door details as well as the carved corbels on lays and post. The island houses the wine refrigerator at one end and the hidden microwave on the inside. Wicker pullout baskets store potatoes and onions and are also hidden behind the doors. The back of the island provides ample seating.
This space was designed with the family in mind. It would be hard to make a bad meal here. Some say the kitchen is the “heart of the home.” In this case, the kitchen was created with their hearts.
