More idyllic than a Nancy Meyers movie set, this fresh and fabulous kitchen design expresses the Lake Geneva lifestyle beautifully! We are excited to share the inspiring kitchen of a recently completed Lowell Custom Homes. A lake home aesthetic is firmly established by the talented interior designers at North Shore Nest. Photography by Aimée Mazzennga captures the rooms for all of us to appreciate.
The kitchen environment has evolved over time into a space where most of our home life happens. Square footage and amenities have both expanded. The result is a spacious design to accommodate our busy lifestyles. The freshest kitchen designs strike a balance between comfort and practicality.
Furniture quality cabinetry is the key to making it all work seamless. This home features custom cabinetry from Das Holz Haus, selected for their meticulous craftsmanship and superior finishing. Their motto, “. . . the most valuable tools are our hands” speaks to the integrity and construction of each piece.
Cooking is at the heart of any kitchen design and here a Lacanche range is the true centerpiece. Known for their superior performance among home cooks and professional chefs, these ranges are made to order deep in the Burgundy countryside of France. This work of art was created in French Blue with signature brass trim.
The range adds a distinctive charm to the kitchen along with a full height patterned backsplash. Reflecting the range finishes, a sophisticated blend of brass and nickel is applied throughout the kitchen for hardware, lighting, and trim.
Functionality in Kitchen Design
The kitchen has become the new living room. It is a family friendly space with designated areas for food prep, cooking, cleaning, working, and gathering together. It all began in the 80’s by taking down a wall. Now the open concept kitchen continues to mature with generous space permitting zones dedicated to specialized activities. This often includes expansive countertop work surfaces and a super-sized island or two.
The cabinetry is beautiful while supporting customized storage. A peek inside reveals expert planning by the kitchen designers at Geneva Cabinet Company in Lake Geneva. Impressive cabinet interiors house everything needed to keep a home running smoothly, even during the most hectic time of day.
The full height storage wall features (from left to right) a storage pantry with roll out shelving, the Miele Coffee System, multiple refrigerator drawers, built-in sideboard, and Sub Zero integrated 30″ refrigerator with 30″ freezer.
In addition to storage, the built-in niche presents a durable surface ideal for serving foods and beverages. The refrigerator drawers located in this section keep essentials like coffee cream, ice, and snacks within reach.
Floor to ceiling cabinetry takes advantage of the full wall height for storage while visually adding substance to this voluminous space. With cabinetry this efficient, every kitchen component is neatly tucked away to avoid clutter. Dexter has plenty of space to make himself comfortable while basking in a sunbeam.
The kitchen island has progressed with the rest of the room to become a mainstay for family activity and entertaining.
In this home two very generous islands further define kitchen versatility. The inside island across from the range contains two dishwashers, two apron front sinks, a waste bin and compactor. The back of this unit boasts 18″ deep drawers for easy accessibility. The space between the two island is an entertainer’s dream. A microwave, warming drawer and more storage keeps everything within reach when serving friends and family. The public side of the outer island is finished with paneling and a countertop extension for casual dining and gathering.
And while the kitchen is an absolute dream, the adjacent dining room offers yet another dining alternative with sweeping views of the lake.
