MEDIUM SIZED GRANDEUR
The appeal of this award-winning medium-sized kitchen by Panoramik Home Improvement’s senior designer Shannon Callaghan is in its simplicity and attention to detail. The horizontal walnut cabinetry, which has been painstakingly bookmarked and sequenced so it flows seamlessly throughout, sets off the contemporary white quartz island and counter top. A feeling of lightness is conveyed through the floating cabinets and island, with thin waterfall-style support legs.
“A medium-sized kitchen can absolutely incorporate everything you need,” Sharon explains, “which means that your footprint is smaller and your price point is lower.” New trends like integrated appliances, where the fridge is reduced to cabinet depth, and dividing the kitchen area into different centers-such as a beverage center that houses an espresso machine, wine storage unit and small fridge for cold drinks--creates additional space. The L-shaped island is a great conversation starter and allows the chef to socialize while preparing a meal.
