A functional, chic and warm kitchen design in a Wildhorse home has earned the prestigious Judges’ Choice Award from the National Kitchen and Bath Association for Nar Fine Carpentry Inc. The local company, owned by Nar Bustamante, received six awards in all at the association’s 2014 awards banquet, including first place for open plan kitchen for the Wildhorse design.

The remodeling project was completed in December 2012 and was featured in a Kitchen and Bath Business online article, “Puzzle Place,” last November.

Bustamante said there were many design challenges to be met with the Wildhorse project. The homeowner wanted a kitchen that was high in function for everyday use that would include a breakfast table that could comfortably seat four. The kitchen is visible to the living room and entry of the home, so aesthetics were critical to the design and presentation.

The design features tall ceilings to create an art gallery with LED lighting in the open displays built into the designer gray cabinets. To create the gallery feeling of a more intimate space, Bustamante painted the ceiling the same gray color as the top art cubbies. This one also was introduced into the large-format tile used for the backsplash and breakfast table.

Designer Nicolette Patton dropped the old high bar idea in favor of a built-in table attached to the kitchen island, which is positioned for high function in the cooking triangle area.

Chocolate-glazed alder cabinets and the stamped melamine island complete the warm, contemporary kitchen.

Nar Fine Carpentry Inc. has a Poggenpohl Cabinet showroom in the El Dorado Hills Town Center and a small showroom in Carmichael. For more information, visit www.NarFineCarpentry.com.
