The Family Style Kitchen

The Family Style Kitchen

You probably want a family lifestyle kitchen if you want a gathering space that your family can be comfortable in: one that's fit for the kids to play in and for you to be in, as well as one that is ideal for cooking and eating. When choosing products for your kitchen, look for functional materials that can stand up to a little wear and tear, such as easy-to-grasp pulls, durable quartz or solid surfacing, vinyl or laminate flooring, and darker wood cabinets that help to hide smudges.

When it comes to modern kitchen design, consider incorporating a lowered countertop surface that puts dinner preparation and cookie making within the reach of the little ones. Include a base cabinet earmarked for coloring and play materials. If you're including an island, make sure extra-high bar stools aren't part of the equation—they're easy to topple off of. Placing your cooktop on the island also deserves special consideration—you need to make sure it's well out of reach. Lastly, have a little fun: bright colors and plenty of windows ensure that the room will be a place the family will want to gather in.

The Cook's Kitchen

The Cook's Kitchen

If you are most comfortable with a whisk in one hand and a spatula in the other, then your kitchen should be a space that lets you get to work. When choosing products, function should be foremost in your mind. Bakers will want to install a marble countertop area for rolling dough; a butcher's block section works equally well for chopping.

The interiors of your cabinets are even more important than the exteriors. Make sure you include plenty of storage for trays, pots and pans, and ample pantry space. Consider two sinks—a large single basin for washing, and a smaller prep sink.

Your appliance purchase demands consideration. Be sure to consider how many BTUs you want your burners to crank out, how many zones you'd like your refrigerator to have, and what capacity dishwasher you need to handle your mess.

The Entertainer's Kitchen

The Entertainer's Kitchen

From casual dinners with the neighbors to festive holiday events, you want a kitchen that is stylish enough to show off to your guests, but comfortable enough to stand in while munching on spinach dip. When selecting products, consider great-for-entertaining appliances like warming drawers (for keeping those appetizers warm), refrigerator drawers or wine refrigerators (for keeping soda and wine chilled), and icemakers (so there's no frantic rush to the corner store for another bag).

We can help you with the perfect kitchen design for entertaining your family and friends. Call (914) 946-8600 or contact us for a design consultation.

The Showpiece Kitchen

The Showpiece Kitchen

You may not be one for cooking, but you want a kitchen that looks like it could whip up a gourmet feast for 12 and looks magazine-ready... In short, a kitchen that impresses. But you also want a well-equipped workspace with formal entertaining space that suits a chef who trades cookie baking for elaborate or even catered dinners. Product-wise, you might opt for heavy, impressive cabinetry, like cherry Old World cabinets or ultra-modern stainless steel. Because there isn't a daily risk of spills, consider including Oriental rugs or artwork to ornament the space. Wine refrigerators and professional appliances give the space rich finesse, as do granite countertops while oversize cabinets and large islands will emphasize your room's grandeur.

We can help you achieve that perfect kitchen design that will impress all your guests. Call (914) 946-8600 or contact us for a design consultation.
