Big and Beautiful White Kitchen on Lake Sammamish
Deanna and Ren had a good size kitchen, but they were tired of the cabinets, the floor color, and a few drawers were in need of repair. There had been so many advancements in kitchen products and design, they knew that their West Lake Sammamish home would only benefit from this update. Even more important, Deanna is an avid cook and wanted a refreshed space that was more updated and to her taste for entertaining her family and friends.
The remodeled kitchen stayed within the existing footprint but contained new perimeter cabinets from Schrocks’ of Walnut Creek featured a maple wood with a white glaze and pin-knife hinge with bronze knobs and pulls, while the contrasting island was painted in Benjamin Moore Galapagos Green with bronze pendants overhead. The gorgeous solid surface countertop in quartzite featured Meta’s Fantasy Brown. The replaced business center helped to contain the clutter with deep file drawers and increased storage capacity and allowed Deanna and Ren to implement a coffee station since the design contained a newly added wall cabinet for coffee cups and saucers.
The black kitchen appliances were replaced by stainless steel alternatives including two dishwashers in the new design, a 30 inch warming drawer, a 36 inch Wolf gas range with a rear downdraft system, and double-ovens. Two Sub Zero 30 inch refrigerators replaced the existing dated versions and were concealed by white-painted cabinet panels so that they would blend with the rest of the kitchen. The new pantry was reworked to remove the extra refrigerator space as it wasn’t necessary, but included new pantry lights, a new large standing freezer and reorganized with utensil storage to the right side and food storage to the left. The lighting system throughout the kitchen was upgraded to include Lutron switches and plate covers that match both the island and wall paint respectively.
Lastly, this project features a gorgeous custom Ferguson farm sink with a decorative apron front and an Apollo Ash Natural tile with a Florida Art metal decorative strip in it. Glass inset top cabinets featured Deanna’s favorite dishes. Small organizational touches such as cookie sheet organizers, utensil dividers and deep drawers for pot storage made a big difference in making Deanna’s kitchen feel organized and complete.
Deanna and Ren are thrilled with the results – their space is now reflective of their taste and love of entertaining.
