Klaff’s emerged from the 2012 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show with a prestigious NKBA design award, won by General Manager of Klaff’s Kitchens, Nick Geragi CKD, CBD, ASID, and Kitchen Design Project Manager, Damani King. They were honored with an award for a winning entry in the Large Kitchen Category of the 2012 National Kitchen and Bath Association Design Competition.
The Design Statement for the kitchen was to maintain a traditional but classic design theme for a kitchen renovation project for a home located on a twenty acre horse farm. The home was soon to go on the real estate market for sale, with the sellers anticipating that it would become a vacation retreat for a large family. The design objective was to create a kitchen that would have strong family appeal. It would feature large spans of counter space, multiple work areas and a duplication of work centers allowing for family assistants to make their contributions.
The Kitchen Details.
The focal point of the kitchen is a nine foot limestone hood acting as the family hearth. In addition, a massive two tier island now serves as a modern day groaning board, where food is displayed buffet style.
Quoting the Design Statement for details about the award winning kitchen, “Our cabinetry features a simple raised panel beaded inset door with large proportion turnings framing the work areas. Using minimal seams, countertops and backsplash material are all Imperial Danby marble for easy cleanup and a classic elegant feel. Featuring interior lighting, the upper row of glass fronted wall cabinets offer an after-hours ambience… We completed our embellishments with a sophisticated layering of different shades of white; a hand stenciled ceiling embroidery and a silver finish plaster texture over the walls… From a family perspective, the kitchen now fits the home with harmonizing appeal.”
