2021 Best Specialty Kitchen Silver Award
Enjoying the outdoor space year-round was the focus of this kitchen design, and Candace Matlock made the most of the 140 square feet at this home in Miami, FL. Employing materials that would hold up to the various weather conditions in Florida was paramount for this space, as was meeting the desire for all of the basic appliances and necessities needed for cooking and entertaining guests outside.
Since the intended use was for entertaining, Matlock chose to elevate the 42″ bar to create a more private space for cooking and cleaning. The cabinetry, all from ITALKRAFT, includes Rovere Grigio Pepe wood veneer, Grigio Anthracite OEA, Grigio Orione drawers and Titan White matte lacquer. Paying clear attention to the need for weather resistance, special stainless steel that’s optimal for outdoor cabinets – with high amounts of chromium and nickel – was used. Integrated Gola channel handles and toe kicks were included in a Champagne finish.
Providing all of the appliance needs for entertaining, the kitchen includes a Coyote gas grill, BEST range hood, Perlick 24″ wine cooler and 15″ ice maker, and Asko dishwasher.
