2014 Boston Magazine Design Home Update – the Kitchen Design4 Min.
The kitchen design has been finalized, plans have been signed off and cabinet construction has begun for the Boston Magazine Design Home 2014.
The Treat family decided on a contemporary yet classic design for their kitchen featuring a mix of frameless and inset style cabinetry. The walnut cabinets are sleek and beautiful with reverse flat panel 3″ solid wood doors. All the drawers are solid maple construction with traditional box joints and concealed soft close drawer slides. The design features a custom spice pullout, adjustable shelving throughout with a custom designed extra deep and tall pantry cabinet.
In keeping with the Design Home’s sustainability theme, the cabinets will be finished with a clear, water borne urethane finish which is non toxic and will not create any off gassing. This is standard operating procedure at Jewett Farms + Co. We were early adopters of water based finishes, both for the environmental considerations and the quality of the finish.
The Walnut peninsula has custom designed side and back panels which give it a solid furniture feel in addition to the functionality of extra seating and storage. The upper cabinets were positioned around the existing windows to keep the space light and ensure enough storage for the Treat family.
While this is a Design Home for a few months, it will be the Treats family’s real home for many years to come so the choices made in the kitchen needed to be exactly what this family wanted. Fortunately at Jewett Farms + Co. we are a custom cabinet shop where every kitchen is built to order by our team of craftsmen at our Dover NH cabinetshop. JF designer Dan worked with both the Treat family and designer Lisa Wasserman Sivan to create just the right combination of style and function.
This Fall the 2014 Design Home will open its door for four weeks of public home tours and 100% of ticket sales will benefit Boston Children’s Hospital. Learn more and purchase tickets here.
