Orange Beach Alabama Penthouse Condo Kitchen Open Concept
The Klein condo is a penthouse unit overlooking the beautiful back bay of Orange Beach, AL. The original kitchen was put in by the developer and lacked a wow factor as well as the organization and functionality that the Klein's desired to fit their cooking and entertaining needs. The right side of the kitchen is a wall of floor to ceiling windows that bring in the beautiful scenery of the bay. It was important to the client to create a kitchen that would enhance and compliment the water view rather than distract from it. We chose the Bristol door, a wide stile shaker, because of it's clean and simple lines. Wellborn's Willow paint served as the perfect compliment to the cool blue tones from the bay view that poured into the kitchen. We made sure to use every inch of space for functional storage; from a lazy susan in the tight left corner, to a tall pull-out cabinet left of the fridge, to custom fitting a cabinet front all the way to the angled wall on the right side of the kitchen. Mrs. Klein wanted a large smooth surface for baking, so we created a double-sided island that gave her a 50" deep smooth countertop with waterfall ends. The Klein's also wanted to incorporate a large wet bar near the kitchen to use for entertaining and display. We used the same finishes and moldings, but added some glass doors and glass shelves to reflect the water views. The bar includes two spice rack pull-outs that are used for liquor bottle storage. This renovation transformed the Klein's drab, builder level kitchen into a custom, highly functional kitchen & bar that harmonizes with the beautiful bay views that encompass it.
