Our team at Kraft recently won the NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) Pacific Northwest 2018 Outstanding Remodeling Achievement Award for the Residential Kitchen $100,000-$150,000 category.
The featured project incorporated the client’s love of artwork and color into a cohesive design with elegant, custom details that will stand the test of time.
About the Winning Project
The original space was closed in, dark and dated. The walls at the island were the first thing you saw when entering the condo. So we removed the walls which really opened it up to a welcoming space. Storage was an issue too so we borrowed space from the main floor bedroom closet and created a ‘butler’s pantry’.
The client’s flair for the contemporary, original art, and love of bright colors is apparent in the materials, finishes and paint colors. Jewelry-like artisan pulls are repeated throughout the kitchen to pull it together.
The Butler’s pantry provided extra storage for kitchen items and adds a little glam. The drawers are wrapped in leather with a Shagreen pattern (Asian sting ray).
A creative mix of custom cabinetry materials includes gray washed white oak to complimented the new flooring and ground the mix of materials on the island, along with white gloss uppers and matte bright blue tall cabinets.
With the exception of the artisan pulls used on the integrated dishwasher drawers and blue cabinets, push and touch latches were used to keep it as clean looking as possible.
Kitchen details include a chef style sink, quartz counters, motorized assist for heavy drawers and various cabinetry organizers.
