Custom tower cabinets surround the primary cooking zone of the design, while a cushioned banquette in the dining area features lower drawers to keep miscellaneous materials out of site. A large butler’s pantry equipped with barn doors hide larger kitchen appliances away from the prep space.  All the custom cabinetry was made complete with knobs and cup pulls from the Top Knobs Asbury Collection.

Transcend Collection brings a modern look to a colonial kitchen

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.

screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-4-19-24-pmThe 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.”

Top Knobs Transcend Ascendra Pulls accent this colonial kitchen featured on Houzz

 

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.

“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.

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.
