Kitchen from Tomorrowland

The recently completed Woloszko Kitchen is part of a larger Woloszko Residence house remodel. This “kitchen from tomorrowland” was part of an environmentally conscious design strategy. Our interior designers at Spaces Designed always design with an eco-friendly mindset, but we found especially great opportunities to make the Woloszko kitchen an energy and space efficient, material-conserving kitchen of the future. The result is an eco-friendly and functional, but contemporary and sophisticated space that improves the lifestyle of our satisfied clients.

We specified an anti-rust coating for this awkwardly placed column and left it uncovered to capitalize on the circulation space around it.

The appliances in this kitchen are low on energy use and high on up-to date technology. Many of our clients are open to eco-friendly appliances such an induction cooktop, steam oven, and cordless small appliances.

Our design makes use of sustainable materials like the space-saving German cabinets faced in wood veneer rather than traditional solid wood fronts. LED light fixtures in the cabinets and overhead lighting add to the tally of saved energy costs as well.

Inside the cabinets, we made an innovative and efficient use of space.

As we accept more and more that the world’s natural resources are limited, we’ve observed a move away from the typical granite countertops to more green products. Some materials that are being used are manufactured stones like quartz. Other countertop options are soap stone, butcher-block wood, stainless steel, concrete, or recycled glass cast in concrete. These are some great examples:

butcher-block countertop

stainless steel countertop
