Kitchen of the Week: Big, Bold and Crimson in Texas

This Dallas kitchen, initially constructed in the 1960s, was in dire need of a makeover. The clients were a busy and expanding household having a kitchen that would allow them to cook, clean, do homework, eat, and interact smoothly. Ralph Stow and his team at Dallas Renovation Group tore down the span fur-downs, brief closets, and big console island and replaced everything with luxury country-style materials. By reorganizing the work triangle at the kitchen and constructing a large, bright red island, they designed a cheerful and trendy kitchen is effective for everyone.

The kitchen’s new layout revolves round the 9-foot-long island. Stow and his team kept the customer’s need for a multipurpose kitchen in your mind and designed a large island that could serve a number of functions.

The island includes two different seating areas, with under-counter closets for children’s crafts and knickknacks on one end. The island countertop is custom made of 4″ thick walnut.

To provide the kitchen a warm, farmhouse texture, they painted it a rich red, and highlighted it with simple barstools the clients already owned.

The garage door initially led straight through the kitchen job triangle, so traffic flow proved to be a large matter. The team rearranged the job areas in the kitchen towards the left side of this space, and set the garage accessibility on the right side. Overall, the kitchen has been widened over 16 inches.

Pull-out Cabinet cabinets flank the fridge, paneled in precisely the same style as the surrounding cabinetry. The unique hood is custom made from copper and treated with a burnished patina.

Leveling and squaring the cabinetry within this 50-year-old house was quite the struggle for Stow along with his group. There was a lot of motion in the walls and floors, which made building difficult.

Custom cabinetry painted in a white has been given an extra country-style touch with rustic looking hardware. A deep farmhouse sink is the best size to hold your family’s dishes, while an in-island microwave drawer helps maintain the cooking process simple and compact.

As part of their multipurpose , the clients also desired a”Mother’s desk” incorporated into the space. A small workspace was constructed in precisely the same style as the customized cabinetry, with lots of storage.
