“Design of the Month” Winner – September, 2011
California Closets has selected the “Design of the Month” Winner for September, 2011 – a contemporary, open-concept Pantry designed by Stephanie Scharr Bonini!
Stephanie designed the pantry to perfectly accommodate the homeowners needs, considering space planning, design, function and overall aesthetic. The Before & After pics are a must-see!
Talk about Amazing Transformations! Stephanie worked with the homeowner, Bob, to transform the original white-on-white panty into an amazing, open-concept contemporary pantry. Below is the design in the 3D CAD program.
Before: Not enough cabinet storage, difficult to prepare & cook
After: A truly customized pantry designed to fit Bob’s exact needs. Open concept shelving allows easy access to pans, small appliances, serving pieces and cookbooks. The varying depths of the system helped accommodate different items without crowding the room, and gave the space some visual interest.
“Our Venetian Wenge finish coordinated with the flooring really well, and would give the space a warm and rich look. As you can see from the photos, it also makes for a beautiful backdrop for Bob’s cookware, cookbook collection, and regular pantry staples like pasta and oils.” – Stephanie Scharr Bonini, Design Consultant
“Bob wanted a really open concept and simple design. We agreed a couple of sections with doors would be good to hide bulk items, and that slide out shelves would make it easier to reach items in the lower sections. Trim molding is installed to make sure that there is a seamless finish to the floor” - Stephanie Scharr Bonini, Design Consultant
This pantry was expertly installed by Steve Rainville and Joe Melanson in 2 days. They did an excellent job on the wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling details and trim.
“Bob, Angela, and their children are really enjoying the new space and the huge improvement to family meal time now that it is so easy to prepare for meals. Next on the list? Bob’s closet!” – Stephanie Scharr Bonini, Design Consultant
