Vermont Open Kitchen with Beautiful Cooking Views
For this Vermont home, the family wanted an open kitchen concept where they could have a fire crackling in the hearth while they cook and watch kids play board games at the dining table. They knew they wanted a kitchen in the country that would draw people together. Depending on the season, one could look out and see an ever-changing view from the oversized glass windows. Imagine a snowy winter wonderland, brilliant fall foliage, or summer trees so lush and green you feel like you are in a treehouse. That’s what we wanted to capture in their kitchen. We decided to add a beadboard ceiling with black accent beams for a cottage appeal, which matched the open beams in the rest of the house. We varied the cabinetry colors (grey and white), countertop surfaces (walnut butcher block and white quartz) and textures (mixed metals and glazed wood) to give the space character and height. The cabinet’s millwork includes a coffee bar, wet bar, and bead detailing around the cabinet frame with a white finish with hand-painted brushstrokes for a classic and timeless look. High-end appliances include a column refrigerator/freezer, gas range, steam convection oven, microwave, and a wet bar with wine refrigeration and refrigerator drawers.
