KOTY: Alspaugh Kitchen & Bath | More than 400 square feet

Photography by Anne Matheis


Alspaugh Kitchen & Bath designed this beautiful 440-square-foot kitchen and personalized it perfectly to the owner’s request. The clients wanted a fully appointed kitchen that incorporated seating, accommodated multiple cooks and had interior accessories such as pull-out spice storage, pull-out trash and recycling, tray dividers, large drawers for pots and pans and cutlery dividers for silverware. The biggest challenge in the design was the large scale of the space and the demand for a large focal point. The gorgeous stainless and brass La Cornue range took center stage while the unadorned swooped hood and the soft curves of the flanking mullions provide a subtle frame that reinforces and extends the focal point in the scale of the room. Lighted glass-front wall cabinets flank the range and display the client’s pottery collection. The double islands are packed with features. A large farmhouse sink dominates the outer island, which also has seating. A smaller prep sink was placed on the end of the inner island providing separate cleaning and prep zones for multiple cooks. A full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator and full-size freezer were paired to create a decorative armoire. The curved mullion shapes from the range elevation are repeated over mirrors. A dark blue finish was used for contrast. The dark blue is also on the lowered island end and coffee bar. The slightly lowered island food prep area is capped with a walnut butcher block countertop. The coffee bar provides a designated area for morning service and features brass sconces and open shelves.


Why the judges love it: The designer chose classic materials. The space is amazingly elegant. We love the design of the refrigerator/freezer pairing.
