This Crestwood, Ky. kitchen was reimagined with gadgets and flair by designer Thomas Lutz, owner of Louisville, Ky.-based Just 4 You Custom Kitchens & Bath.
Perimeter countertops are topped with unusually colored granite, while cabinets pop with a soft pillow edge that hides variously configured drawers.
“He really did not want to have anything on his countertops,” said Lutz. “He was a true minimalist. That was the main challenge – fitting everything into the overall space he had available.”
A black-stained maple island topped in earthy granite features functional prep space on either side of a primary sink. Bar-height seating was arranged around a raised granite overhang.
Approximately 11 feet long, the island also contains a double drawer on its right side with two panels that slide over one another; together, they can hold more than 25 specialty utensils.
