Kitchen Design Story
CliqStudios designer Josh readily admits these homeowners were a pleasure to work with! They knew what they wanted for the most part, but were also open to hearing Josh’s ideas and opinions on the space.
Although this kitchen design does use many standard-sized cabinets, there are also several areas where Josh made great use of CliqStudios’ semi-custom cabinetry system. One such feature is the “clean up zone.” The Sink Base cabinet was pulled 3″ away from the wall to create a nice “bump-out.” To give this and several other base cabinets a much more custom look, was to add Tapered Legs along the bottom to give the “furniture feet.”
The upper cabinets are likewise scattered a bit, with “Bump-ups” and “Bump-outs” to break up the cabinet run, and glass door cabinets flank the sink window. The tallest wall cabinets got a special treatment via a three-tier crown, making them a real focal point in this kitchen. To make the taller wall cabinets even more prominent, standard height upper cabinets were only given a single layer crown along the standard height, and they’re all unified with a light rail molding along the bottom.
One item that really stretched Josh’s abilities was the island, and easily took the most time to finalize. These clients enjoyed entertaining, and were looking for a huge island that could accommodate several people. However, the island itself also had to be functional, with plenty of storage and casual, everyday seating. The final design seats four adults comfortably and is a massive 52” x 96” island. Josh used lots of finished panels and “filler” pieces to wrap the entire bottom, giving it a unique “board and batten look” furniture look.
Josh really went the extra mile on the island. In addition to the base cabinets that make up the bulk of the island, there are a lot of trim, molding, and filler pieces that will have to be assembled on-site to “build” this one-off, custom-designed piece. To ensure his client’s successful assembly, Josh created hand-drawn instructions just for this project. Way to go, Josh!
