THE 2006 HC&G IDEA HOUSE

Heart of the Matter

(Page 2 of 2)

The kitchen will be fully loaded with areas for storage, preparation and eating. Aside from its function, however, they have been working intently on its role, design-wise, in the Idea House.

"How this kitchen is going to work and flow is extremely important," Bakes comments. "And how it blends in with the rest of the house so visitors and potential buyers simply think, 'Oh, this is lovely,' has been our goal. We want to answer questions, not raise them!"

The kitchen will feature all Viking appliances, a company well known for excellent quality and innovation and, as Bakes points out, the only appliance manufacturer to offer a full palette of colors. Fitted out with two dishwashers, a 48-inch-wide fridge, a classic Viking range, a warming drawer, a separate wall-mounted oven and a microwave, this kitchen will be ready to entertain a crowd.

Sizing up a Kitchen:
When building a custom kitchen, here are a few things to plan for:

  • Well thought-out activity areas with workspace you'll actually use
  • Cabinets and drawers that work properly and don't bump into each other
  • Space for gathering and relaxing
  • High-quality, energy-efficient appliances
  • A balance between cabinetry and wall space so the woodwork doesn't overwhelm
