We have created 3 new displays showing the latest and greatest of what we know and do for Sarasota kitchen and bathroom design. We try very hard to be different and show cutting edge design, function and style.
As many of you know, our showroom has 30 different Sarasota kitchen and bathroom displays in all styles and finishes. Our goal is to try and have enough variety to appeal to a multitude of tastes. This enables us to have a starting place with which to build a design. Our three new displays, one traditional, one contemporary and one Zen, are keeping with this idea.
The Georgetown display, a traditional inset door, raised panel maple kitchen, got a facelift. The stain finish is in the taupe family with white hang-up glaze accents. We replaced the wood hood with a hammered metal hood that has wood trim. The back splash is now a tumbled marble with cracked glass inset tiles, listello cracked glass trim tiles on the countertop edge and behind the hood. We changed the surface of the dropped level desk to concrete and inset the cracked glass tiles on the front edge to tie it all together. The existing hardware was polished brass but is now hammered antique pewter. The end result, as you can see, is up to date and sophisticated.
Our functioning bathroom was due and over due for a change so Judy and Rachel put their heads together and created a Zen retreat. It’s a true respite in our busy day and, hopefully yours, when you visit. Aframosia is the wood we selected. It is similar in color and grain to teak but isn’t oily so we could protect it with a dull topcoat. There is a tall, unfitted unit with an asymmetrical combination of open and closed sections. The sink is a partially recessed vessel bowl with a contemporary waterfall faucet. Varying lengths of chunky shelves are scattered on the wall over the water closet. Instead of glass inserts in the one-lite doors, we have bamboo encased in acrylic. To complete the look of our Sarasota bathroom, our flooring is natural bamboo and the walls are a soft Venetian plaster.
Display number three in our revamping is a wonderful contemporary bar using door combinations of rift cut walnut with a teak stain and natural maple. There are two accent doors made of cast glass that the artist named “Gator Glass.” We chose solid 1 1/2” thick Iroko wood that has a waterproof finish as the countertop.
One wall is mirrored with 1/2” suspended glass shelves to provide a nice place for displaying bar wear. Capping off the top of the bar is a 1 1/2” thick trim that wraps the wall and tall cabinets to emphasize the different levels and movement of the cabinetry. For ceiling light we added miniature low voltage can light called starlights because of the twinkle appearance. They bounce off the mirrors and glass and give additional life to this upbeat space.
Come give us a look. We are always excited to show you our commitment to great design and great products for your Sarasota kitchen or bathroom.
Many thanks to Judy Adams Hunt and Rachel Wronowski, the design team that spearheaded these three projects from start to finish. They did a fabulous job redesigning our Sarasota kitchen and bathroom.
