Bright & Accessible Kitchen
Greg and Rose Christianson, founders of G. Christianson, built their house nearly 30 years ago and Rose was ready to update the kitchen. It was a darker part of the house with a wall between the formal dining room and kitchen blocking the natural light. Rose requested better organization, layout, and accessibility. Removing the wall brought in light from the formal dining room and the new soft grey custom cabinets create a brighter and more functional kitchen. The Alder island has 2 different height counters for ease of use. Soft white Cambria quartz counters, medium grey tile backsplash, and upgraded lighting from Hubbardton Forge transform this new space. The addition of the routed finger-hold along the perimeter edge of the countertops helps with grip and accessibility.
Routed Finger Hold
A Routed Finger Hold along the quartz countertop edge was Carl Christianson's idea for accessibility throughout the kitchen. Those with mobility issues can move around the kitchen much easier with an edge to hold on to.
Lighted Frosted Glass Cabinet
The LED tape lights follow the sides of the cabinet to light up the cabinet from top to bottom. The lights are on dimmers so they can be set for a soft glow or to task lighting.
The Base cabinets are all drawers for full access to all of the storage. Our full extension glides are also heavy duty so you can add pots, pans, and plates into the drawers. The drawers have lots of organization options to maximize all of your storage needs.
These appliance garages are an incredible way to keep your most used small appliances on the counters and put them away when you are finished. There are outlets in the back of the cabinet to keep each appliance plugged in. The lift is smooth and provides complete access to the cabinet.
