Dilworth Kitchen & Fireplace Remodel
Location:Dilworth, Charlotte, NC
Project Scope:Pull & Replace
A pair of conveniently located pull-out storage cabinets provide accessible symmetry in the kitchen island. Trays, cookie sheets, and cutting boards are stored on the left side while herbs, spices, and oils are stored on the right side—within easy reach of the cooktop. Shelves underneath the cooktop, and drawers on either side, house pots, pans, and casserole dishes and utensils.
To keep coffee and bar items hidden, but easily accessible, we designed a tall cabinet featuring a glass roll-out tray for the coffee maker. Pocket doors on either side don’t block traffic while the cabinet is open. Three easily adjustable roll-out shelves below the coffee maker store coffee, mugs, vases, and pitchers. Liquor bottles and mixing accessories are kept on a high shelf out of reach from little hands.
Pulling color inspiration from the art and furnishings creates a cohesive open kitchen design.
Not ones for clutter, this couple wanted an easily accessible, but hidden space to store their espresso maker. A flat glass roll-out shelf with roll-out drawers below does the trick.
Narrow pull-outs for spices and oils keep them close to the cooking and prep space.
Cosmetic Fireplace Update
To get a more transitional look in the kitchen and living room, the traditional fireplace mantel and surround was replaced with a three-dimensional, split-faced marble tile and reclaimed beam mantle. Carrying the tile from the hearth to the crown molding gives the fireplace more of a presence and helps to balance the scale of the oversized wall sconces on each side.
