When a New York-native family moved into an 1850s row house right in the heart of historic downtown Savannah, they imagined a space that reflected both the relaxed atmosphere of Southern spaces and the high-style interiors found throughout “the big apple.” The result is a sophisticated, contemporary home that places an emphasis on functionality while pushing the limits of design.
1. A custom brass light fixture sits above the island to center the room and bring a warmer feel to an otherwise utilitarian space.
2. Use every inch of vertical space by placing back-lit storage above existing cabinetry. We recommend using push-touch cabinet fasteners to avoid having to use typical knob hardware for a streamlined facade.
3. Having built-in adjustable shelves at counter height allow for easy access of kitchen items used most often such as spices and coffee. This kitchen features a motorized backsplash that conceals shelf clutter with a push of a button.
4. Gain access to uncharted kitchen territory with the help of a sliding ladder. This custom design allows for the ladder to be removed from the current track and placed elsewhere through the kitchen and dining room as you see fit.
5. A prep sink on an adjacent surface is a great way to free up the space for entertaining. Place items nearby that are also used in cooking prep like cutting boards, knives, and basic ingredients.
