A combination of antique white painted cabinetry and KitchenAid stainless steel appliances was chosen for a classic feel. A furniture-styled island was added for convenient food preparation and to have a quick meal. The space included a butler’s pantry adjacent to the kitchen. For this area, Manzo designed a blend of the original restored wall cabinetry with a wainscot backsplash and a custom-built base cabinetry finished by hand. This creation allowed for the additional room needed for granite counter surfaces, an extra sink and a second dishwasher.
