This modern, sleek and contemporary Poggenpohl kitchen was designed by Sarah Kraus of S&W Kitchens.
The client wanted to update their mini penthouse condo in downtown Orlando with Asian-inspired products and materials to complement their collectibles and furnishings from their travels. Poggenpohl's natural wood-toned cabinets with black and white surfacing –with some punches of red -- create a modern Asian feel.
The original kitchen felt dysfunctional and small with tall soffits. Removing about half of the soffit helped open the kitchen to create more room for display and storage. The sink and the dishwasher, which were once in a dysfunctional location, were relocated elsewhere in the kitchen to create a more harmonious flow with the main refrigerator.
New kitchen features include a hood, a built-in microwave drawer, and a beverage refrigerator in the bar area, where Kraus designed a recessed wall cabinet to store beverage glasses.
