Today we are giving you an exclusive look into our designer, Tiffany's brand new home! This project reveal is one of our most requested and most anticipated projects of 2017. We are so excited to walk you through how it all came together!
Tiffany and her husband, Rob decided it was time that they built their own home. They found a lot they loved and got working on blueprints. They knew right away that they wanted custom cabinetry so they worked with our owner, Garold to achieve their modern, yet timeless vision.
Beside her fridge, she put a cabinet down to the counter so that she could hide her most used counter top appliances including her toaster, kettle and microwave. The doors open and tuck back down the sides to allow full access.
Tiffany knew she wanted a feature island, something different, something inviting. She decided on a sage green painted island with a black walnut butcher block top. For the perimeter of the kitchen she chose a bright white paint, dark laminate countertops (nope! Those beauties are not granite!) and for handles she chose to create contrast with a matte black finish.
Tiffany loves to cook! She was very attentive to the details, ensuring that she could organize her kitchen for maximum baking and cooking efficiency. She planned each cabinet to hold exact items and knew which accessories she wanted to use organize spices, knives, cutlery, pots, pans and containers.
Mix Master Lift
Anyone who owns a KitchenAid Mix Master knows how heavy and bulky the appliance is. Tiffany recommends investing the the Mix Master Lift. This easy to use accessory lifts the heavy appliance to counter height and locks in place. You no longer have to live with it on your counter or the hassle of moving it back and forth to the pantry.
Knife Block Pullout
Every great chef knows that you are only as good as your knives but having so many sizes and brands makes storing them a nightmare. This knife block pullout is one of Tiffany's favorite kitchen accessories. This pullout organizes all knifes and cooking utensils and a convenient pullout by the stove and has adjustable shelving underneath for lower storage.
Garbage and Recycling Pullout
The garbage and recycling pullout is one of our most purchased kitchen accessories. Tiffany chose to go with our double soft closing option and uses one bin for garbage and one bin for her recycling.
Spice Organizer Pullout
The spice organizer has adjustable shelving to organize all sizes of spice jars. Tiffany placed this pullout right next to her stove for maximum accessibility to all spices while she cooks.
Custom Dishwasher Panel
Tiffany chose a "panel-ready" dishwasher which means that her dishwasher is camouflaged among her cabinets. One of the benefits of choosing panel ready appliances is it allows you to hide large, bulky or ugly appliances within the neat and symmetrical lines of your cabinetry.
Tiffany incorporated hidden cabinets on the back of her island. This space is incredibly useful and great for storing items that you do not use ad frequently. For example, Tiffany stores her seasonal platters and decor that she does not need regular access too but would eat up too much closet/pantry space.
Custom Built-Ins (Pantry & CLosets)
With Tiffany's attention to details, she designed her dream pantry. The glass along the top cabinet adds a little interest and texture to the unit. The drawers on the bottom hold large, bulk items that are hard to move, simply, roll out, scoop and close!
It was very important to the homeowners that the bedrooms had maximum floor space. In order to achieve this, they chose custom built-in closets instead of the standard builder closet.
These cabinet doors open up to a high shelf and closet rod and have 4 drawers below. This design eliminates the need for a dresser in the bedroom freeing up a ton of space!
To keep the consistency throughout the home, Tiffany decided to remove the builders closet in her entrance way and have another custom unit installed. This unit holds way more then a basic closet does as the storage is pre-planned to hold all of their seasonal gear.
Next to the entrance closets is a built-in custom bench. It is open to the floor to kick off your shoes and has hooks along the top for items that are used regularly.
Last but not least we have the bathroom vanities. The ensuite vanity has an added makeup counter and lots of drawers for extra storage. We also made a matching shaker mirror frames to bring the whole look together.
