Large Kitchen: Best of Class

By Julie Sanders | Photography by Stacy Zarin Goldberg

Larry Rosen of Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens was given several mandates by the homeowners when he was tapped to design their new kitchen: Replace the room’s traditional appearance with a sleek, modern aesthetic; integrate a large island with an abundance of surface space; and clear the clutter, removing small appliances from sight.

Rosen substituted a drywall soffit and heavy crown moldings with full-height cabinetry to the ceiling, then selected a flat-panel cabinet style for a contemporary look. He installed a large island with a capacious countertop and comfortable seating. To contain the clutter, he ingeniously designed a workspace that houses a countertop, coffee station, adjustable shelving and space for small appliances—all of which can be neatly concealed behind a cabinet door.

A priority for Rosen’s clients was the use of green products wherever possible. To accommodate this preference, Rosen chose cabinet fronts made from eco-friendly engineered wood veneers.
