Rustic Kitchen Renovation in Fort Myers, Florida
This Fort Myers, Florida, kitchen renovation project was part of an extensive whole house remodel.
The new kitchen was designed with an oversized custom island that features a show-stopping single hand-hammered copper sink, bronze faucets, and two dishwashers. Along the wall, we designed a French culinary handmade La Cornue stove and a custom-built range hood creating a stunning focal point in the room. It’s surrounded by classic white stacked cabinetry—the left- and right-side cabinets are flush with the countertops—and the top row of cabinets is designed with glass-paneled doors and in-cabinet lighting perfect for highlighting kitchen collectibles.
The kitchen countertops are topped with Taj Mahal quartzite and polished in a leathered finish to create the rustic feel our clients were looking for. Our design team added two large refrigerator/freezer combo units into the space to provide plenty of food storage, both fresh and frozen. To save valuable counter space and help provide a streamlined, clutter-free look for the kitchen, we installed an appliance garage with additional storage.
Can you spot this unique hidden feature? A convenient “Command Center” was added to one end of the refrigerator wall, concealed behind the cabinet doors, to store mail, a kid’s activity calendar, school papers, a bulletin board, etc.
Finally, the new kitchen features a large, walk-in pantry that includes convenient roll-out shelves and functional storage of overflow bulk items. It was also designed with a pull-out step stool to reach higher shelving and a custom storage area for the client’s Rumba vacuum docking station.
