Normandy Collection featured in HOUZZ Kitchen of the Week

Designer Charmean Neithart had a challenge in front of her when she accepted a Pasadena California kitchen project. Her client, a couple and their twin girls, wanted a functional floor plan that allowed for two people to work side by side in a 10-by-11-foot kitchen.

The result is a bright, open, colorful kitchen inspired by Italian pottery. It is a design where counterspace and pantry storage are the priority. Hand-painted terracotta tile, a farmhouse sink, and blue painted cabinets accented with Top Knobs Normandy knobs and pulls complete the look.

The rustic Top Knobs Normandy Collection includes a variety of birdcage and twisted wire designs – 7 pull, 11 knob, 2 ring pull, 2 drop pull and 4 different backplate styles. For this project 3 3/16″ Normandy Square Twist T-Handles in Pewter finish were used on upper cabinets to add a touch of olde world style. The drawers and bottom cabinets feature Normandy square twist pulls with backplates in a variety of sizes. The decorative hardware’s Pewter finish suits the age of the home and looks beautiful with the blue paint.

This kitchen was selected as the HOUZZ Kitchen of the Week. Read more details of complete kitchen remodel on HOUZZ.

Pennington Bar Pulls add Contemporary Flair to a Space Savvy Kitchen

With help from Top Knobs decorative hardware, designer Paul Lintault of the award winning remodeling company BKC Kitchen and Bath transformed a small kitchen into a contemporary space with an abundance of storage options.

The Larkspur, Colorado kitchen design included modern fixtures and stainless steel appliances. Floors, walls, cabinetry and countertops boasted a neutral color palette while a geometric tile backsplash added a touch of modern flair.

Crystal and wooden style cabinets with Manhattan style doors were installed around the kitchen. The use of both upper and lower cabinets helped to maximize storage without taking up additional space in the room.

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.

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.

For Elizabeth, storage and organization in the kitchen was a key component in the renovation. “I like having everything in its place,” says Elizabeth. “Like dedicated shelves for baking racks and trays.”

02-multitaskerThe Kemp family worked alongside designer Terry Scarborough of Deane Inc., and contractor Chris Kuehn of Longridge Builders to enlarge the kitchen and create an open, free-flowing space. Flat-panel cabinets, sleek pulls and neutral colors kept the feel of the space both fun and semi-formal.
