Front Range Kitchen

IMG_0719

Here’s a kitchen taking shape for Sam and Noy’s renovation. Right at the start of the design phase they said, “No upper cabinets, just windows!” So we gave them a bank of square windows that wrap around the kitchen corner and cap the hand-painted tile backsplash. We built in a huge butcher block under the windows to handle the knife work, and a wide bar top serves everyone who wants to eat, drink and chat with the cook. The six skylights above add ample daylight to the room and are outfitted with solar-powered electric blinds. Press a button on the remote, and the blinds power themselves open or closed, keeping things cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

We had some rusted metal left over from the roof so we paired it with cedar to finish the peninsula:

We like rusty metal so much that we edged the countertop with it (we coated the metal with polyurethane so it wouldn’t rub off).
