Stefanie, Kitchen and Bath Designer at Strobel Design Build, was the primary designer of this beautiful European contemporary kitchen at the Opladen property. Working with the Italian family that owned this property, Stefanie helped design a kitchen that featured European style frameless cabinets with two-toned color, adding depth and contrast to the space.

The clients for this project originally lived abroad, and after settling in the United States wanted a kitchen reminiscent of the European home they left behind. Unique colors and clean lines captured the aesthetic the client envisioned while still blending seamlessly with the style of the other interior finishes of the home. The circulation of traffic around the kitchen was accomplished through the removal of walls and installation of a large working island. Stefanie effortlessly designed a kitchen that made the client feel right at home!

Stefanie’s European kitchen design included two-tone cabinets in a soft aqua-blue and sand color combination, and the line and rhythm of the new cabinets enhanced the aesthetic that the client was looking for. The lighting selection was paramount in completing the modern cabinets while blending with the aesthetic of the rest of the house.

Aside from the usual challenges that come with a kitchen remodel involving plumbing relocation and flooring transitions, this remodel also required the ceiling to be raised. Because of this, the electrical and plumbing lines had to be re-routed. The ceiling also had to be given a perfectly even surface in order to install the cabinets.

Stefanie did an exceptional job designing this kitchen, bringing the client’s vision to reality. For this reason, our team was honored to have her accept this award on Strobel Design Build’s behalf. Stefanie is an incredible member of the Strobel Design Build team, and we are happy to have her.
