This modern Italian kitchen is characterized by many freestanding design elements, including two kitchen islands, a cabinet element along the back wall of the kitchen and interior space, and other unique design elements. The client, who is an interior designer, requested a custom designed, custom built design piece to separate the modern kitchen from the adjoining living room space. The client wanted this free-standing piece to be built in the same cabinet finish as the kitchen cabinets, American walnut wood, hence creating a visual bridge between it and the kitchen. At the same time it was important for our kitchen client that the transitional piece wasn’t feeling too much like it is a part of the kitchen, thus forming its own character. In an embrace of the various free-standing design pieces within the room, a decorative framing was worked into the dual kitchen islands, emphasizing the three dimensions of the pieces.
The kitchen countertops of the base cabinets and kitchen islands are two inches in thickness. The butcher block top for the table that comes out of one of the kitchen islands and is situated next to a bay window has a thickness of 2.5 inches. The tabletop is supported by a custom steel square shape leg designed by our team at Cesar Italian Kitchens. The kitchen cabinets above the cooktop area are made of glass and match the kitchen’s backsplash, which at thirty inches high is higher than the average kitchen backsplash. What makes this modern kitchen project so unique is the custom design specifically for the huge, spacious interiors, which can be characterized by a large glass window front that allows for a beautiful view from any spot within the kitchen. The subtle interior design elements that were chosen by the owner of this stunning NJ home in Weehawken, like the innovative lamps or the top ceiling lighting, make the kitchen stand out even more and round of this award-winning kitchen design and creation.
