A busy family of three wakes up to a crisp Spring morning and is ready to enjoy Saturday cartoons, skimming the morning newspaper, cooking delicious chocolate chip pancakes while seeing the flame of the fireplace. Sounds perfect, right? Until we understand the family can’t enjoy all these activities together as a family because of their undesirable, small kitchen design.
Enter Amanda Listak, Designer of ACo to solve this family’s problems and create a functional setting for future Saturday morning family breakfasts, dinner parties and so much more! “The new focal point became the range wall. We removed a header and repositioned the range. We installed a stainless hood with a nearly 5′ chimney and ran the backsplash tile to the vaulted ceiling!” explained Listak.
Recently, we covered banquette seating here and we were so excited to see the built-ins implemented in the Haverstick renovation! Amanda explains her design, “the banquette allows for informal or formal seating for the family or for entertaining large groups of people. The “cook” can prepare meals without others getting in the way but can still be part of the conversation and feel included in the family/group of people around the banquette.”
Project finishes include the following:
Cabinets: Custom Green City Cabinets – shaker door style, white paint on maple perimeter cabinets, custom stained island and floating shelves
Countertops: Cambria “New Quay” island countertops with contrasting dark Colorquartz perimeter tops
Backsplash: Emser “Convex Matte White Wave” backsplash tile
Electrical: New electrical plan with under cabinet lighting
Appliances and Hardware: Stainless steel appliances with satin nickel hardware
