16WTHE TENNESSEAN Friday, Jurw 12, 1998 WILLIAMSON: REAL ESTATE Old kitchen made obsolete Professional's talents worth the money 2 A 1 I "Don't reinvent the wheel on design. Keep it simple." "Buy an appliance package all the same brand." "Specify the materials you prefer." ; Where people sometimes go wrong is in their selection ot cabi 1 ' Si ir- nets, Burton said. "Don't scrimp on cabinetry. They take more wear and tear than anything else in the kitchen. You can always change out the appliances or even the coun into a corner underneath a second sink also helped to break up what could have been a continuous line of solid cabinets. While the appliance brands vary with Dacor double ovens and a Kitchen Aid microwave, everything blends together with a stainless steel finish. "That's the number-one choice today," Burton said. "It's forgiving and stands the test of time ... Black is second and white is my third recommendation, because if the appliances arent all the same manufacturer, the whites don't match." Flooring became another crucial decision as what Debbie wanted, limestone, proved to be extremely expensive for her budget Besides, she was concerned about its maintenance as it's a very porous material. Working with Rice, she chose an Italian old stone finished tile. Unlike many large kitchens that she'd seen, Debbie agreed to not clutter the space with any hanging light fixtures. Only recessed lighting bathes the room in a soft light Rice suggested finishing the ceiling in a toffee shade, darker than the cabinets, and adding a scrolled design for detail. The family and design team agreed, it was the perfect final touch to this contemporary, old-world kitchen. ters. It costs more to change the cabinets. But some people are more apt to spend more on their appli-, ances." (the certified kitchen designer at Hermitage Kitchen and Bath Gallery) is one of the top two kitchen designers in Nashville and one of the top three in the state. He knows what the newest materials are. And, he knows the ins and outs." Contractor Brent Seaton of Seaton Construction agrees. "It helps to go in with a designer first and have most of your questions answered before starting," he said. However, once construction starts, Seaton insists on continuing to meet with the client and designer either daily or at least twice a week as things change especially when it's a remodeling project One problem that all designers face at one time or another is getting a budget from their client because some believe that it may be possible to get the same results spending less. But, it makes it more difficult as the designer doesn't know what quality or grade to specify for any of the major components of the design. If working with a tight budget Burton suggests three ways to save: So, what should someone spend To accommodate the new design, the exterior side wall was extended two feet to give an 18-by-19 square-foot workspace. Then, the back wall was blown out and a new 19-by-19 square-foot breakfast room, complete with it's own fireplace and vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, was added. Center stage is a 12-foot island. Its two-tiered design helps to distinguish between the prep area and the buffet bar with four stools. Using two different counter solid surfaces a pale, sandstone, oatmeal finish look on top and a bisque color below helps that effect. Instead of flat panels on the ends, Burton added a wine rack and on the other, an ice maker. There's also a warming drawer and dishwasher tucked on the cook's side. The island design is functional with the Viking cook top behind, and the Subzero refrigerator a few steps away. Although Debbie originally wanted an all-w hite kitchen, she changed her direction when she saw the vintage champagne hand-glazed finish of the Rutt cabinets in Hermitage's showroom. She also loved Burton's idea to include some glass cabinets to display some treasured collectibles. And open shelving tucked Wealliersjdns Franklin Financial on a new kitchen? "There's no rule of thumb to spending. It depends on the size of the project" Burton said. If there's renovation involved, where cabinets need to be torn out and walls and floors refinished, it usually adds 25 to the cost of the project. For a $50,000 (new construction project figure that $30,000 would be spent on cabinets, $10,000 on arjplif ances and $10,000 on surfaces.
