About the Project
In a Westchester farmhouse, the new kitchen perfectly reflects the exterior aesthetic. Substantial reclaimed wood beams set the tone. Enduring flush inset cabinets were given a modern twist with a beveled inner door profile. Recessed panels were used on the perimeter, while raised panels differentiate the island. Soft white paint was chosen, while the island received a thinned-down custom blue to reveal the wood grain.
Cottage-style details were incorporated into the design. Furniture toekick valances adorn the sink base and appliance storage area, while cabinets flanking the dining room entry have wainscot backsplashes and graceful corbels for a hutch-like effect.
For a clean look, the freezer, refrigerator, and dishwasher are paneled, but the positioning of the refrigeration is unusual: the units are separated on opposite walls, with the refrigerator placed to the left of the range and the freezer adjacent to the appliance cabinet.
Several custom features distinguish this space. The stainless-steel farmhouse sink is integrated into the stainless countertop on that wall. Stainless tops can also be found surrounding the 48” range. Timeless Carrera marble adorns the other countertops, as well as the backsplashes. But on the island, an inlaid strip of stainless steel is a unique border accent.
This project was done in collaboration with Carol Kurth Architecture + Interiors and Legacy Construction Northeast.
