The Cobalt Companies Project #1 -
Bellmont 1600 Cabinets with KitchenAid and Zephyr Appliances
“The builder and their designer wanted the cabinetry in the kitchen, which is open to the living room, to have some personality.”
~C.J. Smith, Cabinetry Designer
This lovely Cobalt Companies home in East Austin was a project that took place in March and April of 2020. The plan for this new construction spec home consisted of a full set of custom designed Bellmont 1600 cabinetry, along with professional styled KitchenAid and Zephyr appliances to match. Cabinetry design was handled by C.J. Bigini, while the appliance sales were handled by Shane Schmidt.
Check below the photos for details on the cabinetry and appliance styles used in this project.
In this contemporary home, the builder and home designer wanted the cabinetry in the kitchen, which is open to the living room, to have some personality. For this kitchen, we used frameless cabinets, which give an even and consistent reveal between the slab doors. The super matte PET* material used for the base cabinets is extremely durable, and so is the soft touch wood-grain laminate used for the wall and tall cabinets. This is more so than painted cabinets or cabinets with veneer wood.
This kitchen also includes a double bin pull-out trash cabinet and a pull-out base pantry/spice cabinet. Keeping with the simple, sleek lines, the wall cabinets have recessed bottoms to hide the under cabinet lights. This eliminates the need for additional light rail molding to be added.
In the master bath they also wanted the cabinets to be more of a focal point, and it features floating cabinets which add to the contemporary design. We used the same soft-touch wood grain laminate as the kitchen. In the secondary bathrooms and the laundry room, we wanted the cabinetry to be part of the background, so we went with a more neutral white cabinet. These are also using the super matte PET material.
*PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is a form of polyester commonly used in cabinetry, which is molded and used as a durable and clean cabinetry look.
