A New Beginning

Best of Class - Medium Kitchen

A DC couple decided to gut the circa-1970s home they had purchased, and called on Elizabeth Cosby of Poggenpohl to help them create a light, contemporary kitchen. Instead of the traditional peripheral upper and lower cabinetry design, Cosby and her clients chose a more open plan, with a continuous wall of integrated Miele appliances and dark-stained engineered wood cabinets concealing a pullout pantry. A 12-foot island topped with Caesarstone houses the sink and cooktop. It offers capacious drawers, plenty of workspace and an overhang that provides space for stools.

Cosby and her team carefully considered the room’s lighting options, ultimately choosing recessed triple lamp lights above the island to accentuate it as the kitchen’s center.
