How To Create a Kitchen Design That Works

Posted on October 21, 2010 by meaton

Our recent Colorado Award for Remodeling Excellence demonstrates how to create a kitchen design that works. Here are some details about each winning kitchen remodel to help identify your needs whether you’re dreaming of a chef’s kitchen or basic kitchen:

“Table Mesa” Chef’s Kitchen Remodel 1st Place, Kitchen Standard Category

Why It Works:

  • Located at the center of the home with easy access to family, dining, and living room.
  • Adjacent scullery provides extra space for food prep and storage.
  • Maple floors and trim match cherry-veneer-and-graphite-grey cabinetry.
  • White-glass backsplash cabinets and stainless steel toekicks and appliances provide contrast and transition from the wood.
  • Walls were removed and windows added to bring in more natural light and create a sense of openness.

“Glass Residence” Basic Kitchen Remodel 3rd Place, Kitchen Basic Category

Why It Works

  • Contemporary, minimal design, the removal of existing walls and beams, and recessed walls create a large living space and adequate storage.
  • Centered cooktop and sink placement highlights architecture.
  • Center island and warming drawers make entertaining easier.
  • In-kitchen provides the convenience of cooking and eating in one space.
