Sub Zero and Wolf Delicious Design Contest~$100 Visa Gift Card Giveaw

 
 
 
Recently, we gave our builder grade kitchen a fresh new semi-custom look with a budget friendly makeover. A few aesthetic improvements completely changed the look and feel of our space.  We took our kitchen from a bland utilitarian workspace to an inspiring hub of our home.
 
 
 
 We began our makeover by adding paint and molding to our stock grade, natural birch cabinetry.  Soft white paint applied to the cabinetry brightened up our dark kitchen.  Moldings and trim added to the tops of the cabinets made them appear taller, more like high end custom cabinetry.
 
 
Family friendly commercial grade wood laminate floors are both pretty and nearly indestructible. 
New black granite countertops, DIY black painted doors and DIY striped drapery added contrast, personality and drama.
 

 

A DIY wine/cookbook storage cabinet was incorporated by removing one of the cabinet doors and adding attractive storage baskets for bottles, glasses and our family's favorite cookbooks.

 

 
The kitchen is by far the busiest space in our home.  Now, it's a place we actually enjoy spending time in.  My husband and I both like to cook, my daughter loves to bake and our boys love to eat.  
 

 
Our busy lifestyle and love of entertaining inspired the design of our new kitchen.  To make our hectic days a little easier, clear glass jars filled with snacks double as countertop accessories.
 
 
 I chose a neutral color scheme to provide a nice backdrop for various seasonal decor and colorful party decorations that usually appear in our kitchen throughout the year.  
 

 
 Our kitchen is the place where we make the biggest messes,


have heart to heart conversations,
celebrate milestones,
 
 
 study for big tests,
make life decisions over coffee...
 

 
 teach Murphie new tricks,
 
 
and occasionally practice football...
 
 
 May it be ever so humble, our kitchen is not only the heart of our home, it is the hub of our family.  
 
This leads me to my choice for the Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Contest.  The Kitchen Design Contest was created to honor and celebrate design professionals who incorporate Sub-Zero and Wolf products into kitchen designs that are both innovative and beautiful.  To celebrate the 10th Kitchen Design Contest, Sub-Zero and Wolf is giving away over $140,000 in cash prizes to winning design professionals – the largest amount of cash prizes to date.

The People's Choice Award honors the top kitchen design entry as determined by the general public (you and I) via online voting.  The winner of the People's Choice Award will receive $15,000.  My vote will go to the kitchen that appears the most conducive to family life.  I'll be sure to share my choice in the comments soon, voting commences on April 1st and wraps up on the 30th.

  13. I only picked 3 to vote on. Honestly most of them seemed cold to me but there were 3 that seemed like a real family kitchen. I was raised that the kitchen was the center of the home and most of those seemed more like showplaces than homes. They just werent my cup of tea.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I voted for #4. A white kitchen in timeless. This one seemed so inviting. You just know it will be the heart of that home. A place for many gatherings. Love the layout and the cabinetry panels on the fridge and that great big island!

  15. I voted for an all white kitchen with a huge island, dark wood stools and a dark floor. It has marble, lots of molding details and glass front cabinets that remind me of an English Tudor style. Love it!

  24. I don't know the name of the design I voted for, but it was lovely with the hard wood floors, matching hard wood cabinets, the island, and soft lighting and off-white paint. Felt homey and comfortable, for a kitchen, and a kitchen I would want to be in all the time.

  27. On the site I voted for 5 kitchens; one with a French looking plaster hood over the range, one with a library ladder, one with a giant butcher’s block center island, one with smart looking black hardware and one with cool looking soda fountain stools. I did this really because all of those things in one form or another are things that I would like to do in my own kitchen.
