Beautiful kitchen

by Lakeville Kitchen & Bath

           Lakeville Kitchen & Bath designer, Jonathan DeSimini, first met the Island Park homeowners through a referral. Since the 1930s, satisfied customer referrals have been a strong source of business for Lakeville Kitchen & Bath.  

           The challenge in this Island Park home was to create a smart, classic and understated design that would stand the test of time, function as a hardworking kitchen and complement the beautiful waterfront views. The kitchen's strengths include high ceilings and wide open spaces which became an enjoyable design challenge for Lakeville.

           The homeowners decided to use Crystal Cabinetry's Deephaven Door Style with Keyline Beaded Insets. This allowed for the use of a simple, classic cabinet door style while providing a visually pleasing design element to the kitchen.

           A Frosty White paint finish was specially selected to provide a soft white ambiance to the kitchen. Lakevillehouse-magazine believes that many homeowners don't realize just how important the selection of color is as a design element. In this case, the color selection was key to complement the open feel and light that the kitchen enjoyed thanks to its panoramic water views.

          The pièce de résistance of this kitchen is the oversized center island. This marble-topped 32" high island serves as a work surface and kitchen table for the family and guests. An integrated trash cabinet provides a quick and easy clean-up after a long day or during the important prep-work before dinner.

           The second design highlight in the kitchen is the decorative hood, set above the commercial range. The hood was designed to be the centerpiece of the main kitchen wall and it created the desired grandeur and focal point focusing guest’s attention to the new space.
