Taking a Break at the Lake
Natural light in combination with an array of other lighting elements illuminates this spacious lakefront kitchen.
The floating shelves provided by the clients were cut and retrofitted to hold LED lighting. The backsplash is a travertine herringbone mosaic.
The Shaker-style cabinetry with inset styling – also custom made – is painted a dark charcoal gray, and its matte finish is both rich and earthy. Another custom piece is the metallic gray range hood, which seems to float above the cooktop.
Industrial elements, such as the custom Shaker cabinets, concrete floors and reclaimed wood beams, blend seamlessly with the rustic feel of the kitchen.
To the right of the refrigerator is an appliance garage housing a toaster, canisters and the coffee center – daily-use items that are necessary to have at hand.
The cabinetry in the kids’ bathroom was made by a local cabinetmaker, which was a simple and affordable design with just a few boards. Preuss installed a Cambria countertop on the sink, which is adorned with a hanging round mirror.
The master bath is gleaming with white subway tile, complemented by a mosaic strip of marble. The open shower has a floating bench, suspended with a steel plate underneath to keep it sturdy. It also contains a rain shower, as well as a built-in niche for shampoo.
