With help from designer Sarah Robertson, interior designer Suzanne McGrath set out to re-design her home kitchen with the primary goal of re-vamping the space to feature an expansive storage capacity in an open and welcoming way.
The renovation, featured on today.com by Houzz contributor Mitchell Parker, included custom cabinets to hold every item imaginable, including a recessed paper towel holder, a mixer shelf, a spice drawer, a custom knife block drawer and slots for baking sheets.
Even more unique is a wide spice drawer to the left of the range to organizes jars. “You can read the labels and don’t have to reach for ones high up,” Robertson says. “It’s a great setup right by a range. When I redo my own kitchen, I’m going to put in two.”
Light blue subway tiles were used as a backsplash to provide a bit of color to the 1920s Colonial-style home. To modernize the look, hints of stainless steel appliances and cabinet hardware were used throughout the kitchen as well. “It could be interpreted either way — modern or traditional. That’s what I like about it,” says Robertson.
The custom cabinets were complete with Ascendra knobs and pulls from the Top Knobs Transcend collection.
