“We cook a lot for ourselves and entertain fairly regularly, and we wanted stuff within reach,” says Schumpert. “We wanted to be able to minimize clutter and didn’t want to bump into each other all the time when cooking.” He and Pelliccia wanted to be able to prepare dinner while having their daughter, Lola, 9, sitting nearby doing homework.

Interior designer Carmel Greer of District Design removed the interior walls on the main floor and expanding the kitchen to the full width of the house, placing the living area in front and the dining area in back. The kitchen is now the centerpiece of this house, and light floods in from both directions.

Top Knobs Sets the Standard in an Award Winning Tampa Kitchen

In Tampa, Florida a French inspired kitchen using Top Knobs cabinet hardware has won the prestigious Southeast Builders Conference 2015 Aurora Award for Interior Merchandising/Design in the Kitchen category for projects in the $1,000,001-$2,000,000 range. Here’s a look at the project which was recently featured in House Trends Tampa Magazine.

Amoroso Cabinets, in calibration with Windstar Homes, were the masterminds behind the kitchen project. Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, the homebuilder put most of the budget into the kitchen where family and friends could gather in an open air space.

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 8.24.26 AMDoug Amoroso, President of Amoroso Cabinets told House Trends Tampa that the reasoning behind the bright, open air kitchen comes from the latest trend of people using shades of taupe, mushroom and grey with simple details to result in a clean and contemporary feel.

All of the custom made cabinets were perfectly accented by pulls from the Top Knobs Somerset Finial collection in the Pewter Antique finish.

Top Knobs Featured in High Point Home Rejuvenation

High Point, North Carolina is known to most of the world as a furniture mecca, where Randall Bryant Terry Sr. founded the Dalton Furniture Company and helped to establish the International Home Furnishings Center. This year, the 1912 Tudor estate where the Terry family once lived was used as the 2015 Junior League of High Point Designer’s showhouse. 28 interior designers revamped the historical home. The results were covered in Traditional Home Magazine and Top Knobs once again made a beautiful appearance.

The large estate features an upstairs art retreat, which doubles as a dinette. The multi-purpose room was designed by Holly Hollingsworth Phillips who refers to the space as a “refuge for the global nomad.” The dinette area includes quartz countertops, hardware flooring, and a teak “hand” chair and coffee table, which the designer discovered in India.

Because the vaulted ceilings cause a lack of space, the room highly relies on cabinetry for storage. To pull the attention towards the darker cabinetry design, the designer used Top Knobs Cobblestone Pulls in Polished Brass, which brings a beautiful color into the room.

The Cobblestone Pulls are a part of the Top Knobs Cobblestone Collection, which includes both Knobs and Pulls in Brass Antique, Polished Brass, Coal Black and Polished Nickel.

Growing Pains

Top Knobs Charlotte 3″ Pulls

Growing Pains: Homeowners Molly and Andy Beals remodeled their master bathroom with a budget of only $710. They took their previously dark and busy chevron patterned bathroom, and turned it into a tranquil space using hues of cool neutral colors.

To compliment the new light and earthy colors, the Beals replaced their old vanity countertop with a lighter colored one. Top Knobs Charlotte 3” pulls were used to complete the look and give the vanity even more of a fresh feel.


 

Fresh Era

Cabinet Cup Pulls

Fresh Era: Over in San Diego, Joanne O’Dea and John Rudderham agreed to remodel their 13-year-old kitchen after 18 long months of planning. Living in a bungalow with a small sized kitchen, Joanne and John’s main remodeling goals were to give the kitchen a fresh new feel, while simultaneously increasing storage space.

The homeowners chose shades of light green to give the kitchen a cheerful vibe and installed new cabinets all around the kitchen to give them more storage space. To finish off their new space, Joanne and John used Top Knobs Cabinet Cup Pulls on the drawers that lined their kitchen.


 

Over The Moon

Asbury Collection

Over The Moon: Last, Atlanta designer Kelly Kole redesigned her bathroom after falling in love with a blue and white floral wallpaper. After deciding upon the wallpaper as the high-point of the room, she then used creamy-white paint colors and bath accessories to bring the rest of the room together.

The bathroom also features duel vanities and custom cabinetry to match the color scheme of the room. Once installed, the vanity was completed by adding cabinet hardware from the Top Knobs Asbury Collection in a polished nickel finish.

In The News: Top Knobs helps Transform Kitchen Into Tuscan Paradise

The transformation of a San Francisco home’s kitchen into a Tuscan inspired eatery was featured in the March issue of Better Homes & Gardens: Kitchen & Bath Ideas, and Top Knobs took center stage.

BHG Italian Romance

After California couple Heather and Massimo met during an extended stay in Tuscany, they knew that their first order of business was to remodel their kitchen using the Italian influences that they fell in love with.

The Victorian style home’s kitchen was remodeled in the late 80’s, but lacked the culture and character that Heather and Massimo had imagined.

“The kitchen was really unattractive. In fact, it felt more like an office space with its long bank of plain cabinetry and black appliances,” says Heather.

The newly remodeled kitchen included limestone floor tiles, a handmade limestone range hood, a handmade tile back-splash, and custom two-toned cabinetry all tied together with popular Italian motifs.

Top Knobs cabinet hardware was used to accent the beautiful cabinetry and finish off the Tuscan design. The Devon Knob and the Tuscany D Pull from the Top Knobs Passport Collection, both in the Pewter Antique finish, were used in the remodeled kitchen.

“Just be opened minded with the colors,” Victoria answers back.

The crash begins!

Interior walls were torn out, countertops were smashed and windows were destroyed to make way for a modern, new and beautiful kitchen that the entire family can enjoy complete with a charging station for gadgets and computers.

The new kitchen also includes new appliances and Top Knobs collection cabinet hardware that fit in with the subway tile back-splash and Moroccan inspired lighting and a beautiful dining peninsula for the family.
