Ridge, NJ home was built in the late 19th century
and the homeowners have done a great deal of restoration
work to maintain and feature the original craftsmanship
in the details of the home. In taking on a kitchen
redesign, it was important to the homeowners that
the kitchen be modern and functional but that
it still felt cohesive with the rest of the home.
To accomplish this, Modiani’s
designers used a cherry wood custom cabinetry throughout
the space, creating a warm feel that is consistent
with the rest of the home while still adding a great
deal of storage and functionality. The dual windows
on one wall made configuring the kitchen somewhat
of a challenge, particularly because given the kitchen’s
square footage, adding larger more modern appliances
proved difficult. One creative solution that Modiani’s
designers came to for this problem was to use wall
space in the adjoining room to create more depth
for the refrigerator and steam oven near the entrance
of the room.
The moulding in this space is three piece and goes
all around the room.
