The Cornell painted classic kitchen is a square frame kitchen with a detailed bead and a raised center panel to the door. The drawer fronts have similarly detailed beads to the frame while the center panel of the drawer is flat.
The detailing of the Cornell painted kitchen is infinite. Unlike most kitchens today, the drawer front to this kitchen is as detailed as the door itself. The overall effect of the detailing is to offer a very classic design that is more than suitable. The classic design ethic of the Cornell is enhanced by a large range of detailed accessories such as toothed cornice, pilasters, glazed doors, and plate racks.
Some of the Edwardian properties into which this kitchen may go often have high ceilings; fortunately, the range includes tall wall units of 900 mm tall. When tall wall units such as these are utilised in a design the kitchen naturally finishes at 2300mm over the floor. A standard modern ceiling is at 2400mm (eight feet). I tend to recommend a medium height wall unit (720 mm) for standard ceiling heights.
