Less Cabinets For a Better View

These Hopkinton, MA homeowners had a wonderful view of conservation land behind their house. This includes a beautiful view during every season as well as various types of wildlife. The problem was, they had only a small kitchen window offering limited viewing of the great outdoors. So, with the help of their contractor and Kitchen Associates, a new kitchen layout was designed. Three oversized windows were installed to create a panoramic view of the beautiful backyard. 

Adding these great windows also created a challenge. With no room for upper cabinets, would there be enough storage? To solve this, a storage system was installed in several large lower drawer cabinets to store plates, dishes, and glasses.

In their planning stage, the homeowners had seen Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances with the flush inset type of installation. They loved this look and wanted to incorporate it into their new kitchen. You can see how the oven and refrigerator were installed in the following photos. You will notice how the decorative side panels line up perfectly with the cabinet fronts on the Sub-Zero and the cabinet above.
