Get ideas for painting a two-tone kitchen.
Designer Peter Salerno creates a chef's dream for two passionate cooks who love to spend hours in the kitchen preparing gourmet meals.
In addition to designing a kitchen that houses all their cooking and baking needs, he had to also include multiple dining areas for their family.
Peter shares with us how he harmonizes stainless steel, painted wood and walnut wood to create a one-of-a-kind look that mixes the classic and contemporary styles.
There were no windows in the kitchen cabinet layout, and we needed to find a storage area for oversized blenders and mixers. They wanted multiple seating areas for their large family since they entertain often and to also create display areas for their extensive dish and glass collections.
The island was placed parallel to the large windows in the breakfast area to maximize and enjoy the natural light. Three appliance garages were implemented in the design for easy accessibility to large, heavy oversized blenders and mixers. Three seating areas — the kitchen table, island seating and a booth — were created to meet the needs of the family and guests.
An impressive four-sided stainless island contains two commercial stoves, a griddle, a broiler, a salamander, sink, pot filler and a built-in ice container integrated in the countertop.
The coffered ceiling was designed to accentuate the stainless hood and wall cabinets, and a window placed over the booth allows natural light from the home office area to enter the kitchen area.
