This custom end cabinet features a wine space, decorative area for cookbooks, pictures, etc, and a hollow, decorative pilaster, used for the electrical outlet on the island end. D Does the phrase “location, location, location” sound like the advice you hear from every reputable Realtor you have met? Well, it turns out that this same wisdom can be utilized in your kitchen. From the stunning coffered ceiling treatment to the practical, easy maintenance porcelain flooring that mimics hand-scraped wood flooring, no detail in this remodeled kitchen in High Point was overlooked. THE CENTER OF THE HOME Using a collaborative process with Brickwood Builders and the homeowners, along with Carol Van Zile, CKD of Marsh Kitchens Greensboro, designed cabinetry for every item in the kitchen, from the wine rack to the specialty paper towel holder, to address the specific needs and lifestyle of the homeowners. Why so much attention to detail? With today’s active lifestyles, the kitchen truly is the hub of the home. In addition to its beauty, the kitchen must function well for both daily activities and for entertaining. The original kitchen was small, dark and was isolated from other areas of the home. It did not function or flow well for a young, growing family that loves to cook together and entertain. Luckily, it was located next to a large, yet oddly shaped laundry room. The solution? Relocate the laundry room, remove the walls and reconfigure the layout of the kitchen. WINTER 2014 75
