These clients—a husband and wife—have lived in the same house for 27 years. Their tired, old kitchen was aching for an upgrade, so they turned to Holland’s Custom Cabinets.
The wife loves to cook and hosts guests for large meals at least twice a week. Organization, functionality, and a sophisticated look were very important to her.
Equally important was that while she wanted to make this a true “chef’s kitchen,” she did not want it to look like a restaurant. This was their home after all, a place for family and friends to gather and enjoy good food and good company.
The goal was to provide as much storage and organization within the same footprint of the original kitchen, while modernizing the overall look, feel, and function of the cabinetry.
Holland’s started by replacing outdated golden oak cabinets with painted and timeless white cabinets. This helped brighten the previously drab space and add a level of sophistication and airiness.
Custom features such as larger and specific drawer sizes and custom inserts allowed the client to organize, store, and access a variety of small kitchen appliances, pots and pans, bakeware, flatware, pantry items, and more. All of these changes were designed to aid the client in food preparation, clean-up, and allow her client to display favorite items neatly on shelves and/or in cabinets when not in use. Another highlight included a built-in wine cooler and alcohol pull-outs for entertaining.
Holland’s helped incorporate the sophisticated, airy look and feel of the new kitchen into the clients’ living room space for a cohesive, seamless transition that incorporated the clean lines of existing decor, which included a fireplace, mantle, and piano. We designed a custom entertainment center to showcase a large, flatscreen television and store various electronics and media discreetly out of site, with both overhead storage and storage underneath.
