21st C Custom Kitchen with Rustic Details, Work-in-Progress

Radiant-Floor-Heating-under-Travertine-FloorThe Redding family brought us their ideas and we worked with them right down the smallest details to give them the kitchen they desired. Cabinet doors were designed and fabricated to the millimeter of our clients’ specifications; wood for countertops was hand selected by Jeff Titus and the clients; the stone surround and stone incorporated into the island were handcrafted to complement the adjacent family room fireplace; and, the organization of the info center was tailored to our clients’ requirements.

The kitchen cabinets were custom made out of cherry wood in our millwork shop located in Redding, CT. The cabinets were designed with recessed panels inset doors and drawer fronts with plenty of organizational storage per clients’ requests. The kitchen island barn board was handpicked by client and Titus. The barn board was handcrafted into a 2” oblong shape with eased square edge countertop with a less porous finish but at the same time retain the look and texture of reclaimed boards.
