A huge congratulations to Krista Agapito of S&W Kitchens in Longwood, Florida for winning the Kitchens Over $225,000 Gold award! This open floor plan kitchen was a challenge due to the range of elements and working within the style of the 1980’s build.

The client desired a modern, warm look, and Krista achieved just that by incorporating a mix of natural, warm elements in a sleek way. Flat panel cabinetry is used throughout the design. A stone wall between the front door and the kitchen adds organic texture. A Grothouse 3-inch thick Walnut waterfall bar top provides a sophisticated seating area for four.
