Gates Mills home bucks tradition with a modern kitchen design
It's no accident that the barstools in this kitchen tuck fully beneath the bartop, maintaining an open flow through the kitchen.
A dropped ceiling platform was installed to house mechanicals displaced by removing the 1970s soffits in this kitchen design.
Industrial-style stainless-steel pendant lights over the island reflect this kitchen's commercial-quality appliances.
A kitchen pantry with frosted-glass doors is the only free-standing piece in the kitchen, although other elements are made to look modular.
For a modern-yet-warm ambiance, cabinetry pieces are a combination of cream-colored furniture-grade lacquer, with a high-gloss finish, and brown textured melamine from Italy.
This custom-painted Starphire glass backsplash was designed to be understated--picking up the cream color of the cabinetry. The nearby refrigerator is showcased--not tucked in a corner or hidden behind paneling.
