Project Review: Modernized 1890s Brownstone Kitchen

Michele Alfano of Michele Alfano Designs, known for her modern signature, recently took on a new challenge to work with clients who prefer a more traditional style. She was asked to modernize the kitchen of a 1892 brownstone in Hoboken, NJ yet maintain the home’s historic touches. Top Knobs Somerset transitional style decorative hardware was an integral part of the design.

“The Hoboken home had great bones,” said Alfano. The designer introduced tin metal into the kitchen that brought in sophisticated and historic detailing. It not only honored the personality of Victorian homes in the 1890s, but also created an architectural focal point in this kitchen.

Brownstone-Project-Top-Knobs-Alfano-DesignsThe tin was recessed into the sheetrock ceiling directly over the island and in line with the pantry. A pure modern gesture.

White cabinetry was accented with shades of grays. The honed gray concrete counter in combination with the polished marble-look island makes a statement. The crisp lines of the island’s waterfall stone edge swirl with attention.

The client fell in love with the Top Knobs Somerset pull and cup pull decorative hardware collection in a brushed nickel finish. Its contemporary design with striking curves and straight edges was a nice accent to the lines of the cabinetry.

The Somerset collection offers a seamless transition between classic and contemporary. The cabinet hardware is available in 2 ½” and 3” cup pulls, nine knob styles and five style pulls: Star pulls, Voss pulls, Arendal pulls, Somerset pulls and Wire pulls. A mixture of 18 finishes varying by product style make the transitional Top Knobs collection ideal for nearly any kitchen design.

The apron front sink was a perfect selection for the kitchen. A contemporary take on a classic style, it is crafted in Silgranit, a granite composite that is ultra-cleanable and extremely durable. The client loves it.

Layers of lighting fill the kitchen space. Recessed ceiling lighting, under-cabinet lighting and modern pendants drop from the geometric tin ceiling over the island. Opening up the back wall with a large span of windows was key to the design. Views of their garden with tons of natural light pours into their space making it feel larger.

According to Alfano, the collaboration with the client worked seamlessly and they are so happy in their new home.

Taking kitchen design to the next level with Appliance Pulls

Cabinet hardware is often referred to as jewelry for the kitchen, or the icing on the cake of a beautiful kitchen design. But its one piece of hardware in particular takes kitchen designs to the next level: appliance pulls.

Appliance pulls from Top Knobs offer an opportunity to personalize appliances while creating a cohesive, coordinating look in kitchen design. Designed to coordinate with cabinet hardware, they are typically used on paneled refrigerators, freezers, trash compactors, or dishwashers where the front of the appliance looks like a cabinet face rather than an appliance. The pull is used to open the appliance door.

Top Knobs offers an extensive range of Appliance Pulls in a variety of styles and finishes. The choice of what Appliance Pull style to use is usually based on matching the cabinet hardware installed on other cabinets and drawers.

Designed to coordinate with Top Knobs pulls and knobs, some of the most popular Top Knobs Appliance Pulls include the Kara Appliance Pull, Edgewater Appliance Pull, Ascendra Appliance Pull, Hopewell Appliance Pull and Reeded Appliance Pull.

The Top Knobs Appliance Pull collection is offered in 8 different lengths to match any design scheme. Ranging in length from 8″ to 30″, each come with proprietary sealed finish and lifetime warranty.

In order to install an Appliance Pull it is best to refer to the appliance manufacturer’s installation manual. A Top Knobs showroom dealer can also assist with professional installation.
