Tropical Modernism Kitchen

Tropical Modernism is a design theme popular in many high end coastal resorts. Coles designer Steve Hellman and our client chose this style to tie in to contemporary architecture of the client’s home while ensuring the space still had the warmth and character that this family exudes in all their actions.

The client is a frequent entertainer of large groups. In their old kitchen they often found large groups of guests huddled around the 3 chairs of their small peninsula.

In order to accommodate their lifestyle Coles repositioned appliances and removed a load bearing wall separating the kitchen and family room providing the space necessary to build a large island that can now accommodate the family and their guests comfortably.

Ultracraft custom cabinets, Silestone matte quartz counters, sandstone 3D backsplash, and updated organization systems finished this remodel off and created the perfect space the client had dreamed of.

Indestructible Dekton counter tops by Cosentino are fused by heat and pressure with stainless steel and Onyx backsplash tile. Natural stone tile throughout kitchen and bath with beautiful, water-resistant Luxury Vinyl Plank floors throughout the home and new carpet in the bedrooms.

Lakeside Home

This Lakeside home sits on five acres with its own private lake. The clients worked with an architect and Coles from the inception of the project which touched every inch of the 4300 square foot home. The goal was a transitional style that melds contemporary comforts like large pantries with roll out shelves and upscale Miele appliances with durable materials that hold up to lots of traffic.

The couple have two young boys and love to entertain their friends and their friends’ children. The slate looking tile floors in the kitchen and eating areas lead to the wrap around patio and wide open doors; they add a gorgeous color pallet while masking spills. At the end of an active day, a luxurious master bathroom was in order; featuring a free standing, elegant tub, expansive shower and sumptuous tiles with a variety of textures and patterns in gray tones.

Contemporary Classic

The dark, heavy kitchen in this beautiful home was dated. After a complete renovation, including flooring, countertops, backsplash, cabinetry, appliances, and paint, as well as changing key elements of the adjoining family room, this space now feels bright and contemporary, just like the rest of their home.

The clients were out of town for much of the remodel, and needed someone to do the entire kitchen remodel. Coles handled everything from design to material selections and management of the daily schedule. The homeowners were able to continue their lives with as little disruption as possible, and return to the kitchen of their dreams.

Modern Reniassance

This family wanted their kitchen to accommodate their family of six with space to cook together. The original island created an obstacle in the kitchen work triangle and forced a bottleneck in foot traffic. This redesign fulfilled the clients’ request for multiple work areas, and incorporated their love of intricate wood carvings.

The cooktop had previously been in the island, but with the transition to a freestanding range and double oven, there was the opportunity to do more with the island and the wall space near the fridge. The new island is more than just countertop space and storage. A second sink and a set of refrigerator drawers were added to create multiple prep areas.

Entertainer's Kitchen

The most important part of this kitchen remodel was creating a functional, two-person kitchen while maintaining an space where family and friends could gather and interact. The original kitchen was too cramped for more than one person to work at a time, and the limited counter space did not provide enough work surface for prepping meals.

The dark cabinetry, stainless steel finishes and slight iridescence in the backsplash make the space feel modern, while the warm tones keep the overall atmosphere inviting. Transparent, woven blinds, bamboo barstools, natural stone tile and opaque glass on the upper cabinetry help ground the design with an organic touch that will keep the revitalized space feeling comfortable and timeless.

Luxury on a Budget

These homeowners needed to update their kitchen to accommodate their growing family of five. The kitchen was the last room in the home to be remodeled, and the builder-grade oak cabinetry was an eyesore they were ready to do away with. The pantry needed to be relocated to a corner with less cross traffic.

The old kitchen was bland, while the new one defines sophisticated luxury. With a butler’s pantry, updated cabinets and crown molding, an abundance of travertine and space to entertain, we were able to bring the beauty into the most used room of the home — the kitchen — and create a larger, more functional space within the current footprint while adhering to a strict budget.

Configuring Convenience

This client wanted a brighter kitchen where she and her two children could gather and share meals together. She already knew the materials and appliances she wanted, but needed help designing a more functional, welcoming space.

Despite the large room, the existing kitchen had limited storage and areas for multiple cooks to work at one time. The small island made the walkway near the sink and dishwasher too narrow, the bar seating awkwardly forced everyone in a row looking out into the backyard and away from each other and there was nearly a foot of wasted space behind the sink.

The new layout reflects the cheery, airy feel that the client determined with her selection of materials. While the previous design made each area feel boxed in and isolated, this kitchen encourages a natural flow between prep, cooking and seating. Although separate so as not to interfere with daily kitchen activities, the bar is integrated in a way that lets the showcase cabinetry mirror the large trio of windows. The final result offers a place for the family to enjoy their time together feeling close to one another, but not crowded.

Master Bath Retreat

The configuration was all wrong in the original dark, odd-shaped master bath. Two large, ill-fitting cabinets were on opposite sides of the sink, a built-in cabinet was next to the cramped shower in the water closet and a small closet took up space on the way into the bathroom. The windowless room also had no natural light and circulation problems.

The new layout addressed all of these issues, while streamlining the storage. Removing the closet made way for an L-shaped vanity, as well as a large window. The vanity houses multiple extra-deep drawer banks and a lazy Susan. In addition to the natural light from the window, ideal lighting conditions are created by sconces on either side of the medicine cabinets.
