Kitchens Under $100,000 – KBDA 2017 Silver Winner
Abigail Syltie, Redstone Kitchens, Dallas, TX
Contemporary yet warm was the request for this kitchen, designed by Abigail Syltie of Redstone Kitchens in Dallas, TX. The homeowners wanted the 350-sq.-ft. space to be a peaceful spot where they could enjoy a cup of coffee or entertain, but they didn’t want it to look like a kitchen.
Syltie started simply with slab high-gloss doors in white from Downsview Kitchens. Along the back wall, a Bertazzoni cooktop is set in a White Zeus Extreme Silestone quartz countertop from Cosentino. The Aria Stone Gallery’s Dolce Vita marble backsplash showcases various shades playing well against the Downsview upper lift cabinets, featuring slab doors in rift-cut walnut veneer, which is repeated in the open shelving. A custom Vent-A-Hood 48″ tilt-up hood is tucked away in the cabinetry.
The first of the islands is all white, repeating the white cabinetry and countertop. Here, a Chemcore Jasper sink with Grohe k7 Semi Pro Faucet and paneled Bertazzoni dishwasher provide function on one side, with seating on the other. The second island features white cabinetry with an undercounter wine cooler from U-Line, with more seating on the other side, all wrapped in the Dolce Vita marble.
The workhorse area of the room includes massive amounts of tall storage along with a Bertazzoni convection oven and speed oven beside the GE Monogram 30″ refrigerator/freezer, all finished with Downsview’s slab high-gloss doors in gray, packed with clever storage.
