In the Eye of the Beholder…

Clay Cox, Owner/President Kitchen by Clay

Every once in a while, I have the privilege to be a part of a project that simply “tickles me pink.” The photo below is a perfect example of a kitchen that we designed that does just that.

Now, just so you know, I am partial to the color blue and that might be a factor in my enthusiasm for this particular photo. Even so it’s only a small part of what makes me smile. The layout of the room, in and of itself, lent to a very well-designed kitchen.

Let’s start with the big picture window on the back wall. Magnificent is the only word I can find for the impact that wall makes on the overall kitchen design. I love that we did not add cabinetry to the left and right of the window because we decided that the tile would be more than enough to catch one’s eye.

Once you manage to take your eyes off of that wall you will see a well-balanced kitchen with all the storage solutions anyone could ask for.

Take the 48” range with the dual ovens for example. This eliminated the need for a tall tower cabinet that typically houses the ovens and/or the microwave leaving the countertop space expansive and luxurious. The microwave is the drawer style and is below the window on the left. The use of stainless steel for the hood adds another texture and keeps the all-white cabinetry from becoming too “humdrum”.

Once again, my compliments to the room space itself. As you can see it allows us to not only have a ten-foot-long island with seating on two sides to help the conversation flow freely but the family table off to the left is also a winner when it comes to getting everyone together. The homeowner’s choice of artwork, flooring, seating choices and lighting fixtures complete this wonderful kitchen.

The bottom line is that if beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, I am here to tell you that this beholder sees the beauty of this kitchen.
