INTRODUCING DESIGNS BY CHEF SPIKE
A kitchen fit for a chef
Your Kitchen. Your Way.
Chef Spike's menu of options allows you to personalize your kitchen more than ever before. Whether it's a double island for entertainment, a redefined pantry for food prep, a refreshment bar for beverages or decorative storage shelves—there are over 40 ways you can reconfigure Spike's designs to match your sophisticated palette. Keep reading and discover the four areas Chef Spike re-imagined.
Expand the kitchen into your entertaining space, all while keeping guests out of the chef’s workspace. Choose from three innovative island styles: L-shaped with dining-inspired seating, rectangle with elevated bar or double islands. Within the island itself, choose to replace cabinetry with a microwave, desk or open shelving to truly make the heart of the kitchen your own. Making memories in your new kitchen will be easier than ever before.
Pantry & Prep Kitchen
Explore a modern interpretation of the pantry by designing a secondary space for out-of-the-way food preparation, an undercounter herb garden, a second dishwasher, or additional storage. This is the perfect place to hide the dirty dishes after your dinner party. The best part about this highly customizable space? Upgrading to the prep kitchen modifies your floorplan—making it unlike any other Timberneck II in Meadowbrook Farm.
Make use of every wall in your kitchen with Chef Spike's refreshment bar. Strategically placed between the kitchen, dining and living areas, this center gives everyone easy access to refreshments. It encourages proper temperatures for wine storage, offers display space for glassware and provides an additional beverage sink that doubles as an ice container. Let the entertaining begin!
Keep the traditional wall cabinets or ditch them for an open shelf aesthetic, allowing easy access to cooking supplies and dishes. Not only do open shelves above the countertop increase storage options, but they enhance kitchen space by making it appear brighter. They also provide you with the perfect opportunity to show off your stylish dishware. Opt for open-face shelving in as many or few places as you desire.
