If you’re looking for an example of a luxurious kitchen that is also warm and inviting, this homey kitchen from our friends at Doomis Custom Home Builders will be right up your alley. It features professional appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf, Best and Asko and custom applications like wood panel fronts on the all-refrigerator, all-freezer, under-counter wine refrigerator and dishwasher. All the appliances in this kitchen were expertly installed by Grand's team of professional installers.
About This Kitchen
This kitchen space does a great job of mixing luxury appliances, materials, fixtures and other touches into a comfortably livable space that is perfect for congregating and entertaining. The oversized center island is central to this balance. While it’s easy to spot premium elements like a huge solid surface top, interesting X-shaped inserts in the cabinet end panels and attractive cottage style pendant lighting, it is easy to imagine families and friends gathered around for food prep, buffet browsing or casual chatting.
The custom wood paneling on the refrigeration and dishwasher also helps maintain the cozy vibe by minimizing the amount of stainless steel and replacing it with the warmer wood tones. The wood panel fronts also make the stainless steel on the professional range and chimney hood a nice juxtaposition to the rest of the kitchen, particularly with the iconic red knobs of the Wolf range.

Professional Range: Wolf DF484CG
The 48-inch Wolf dual fuel range model DF484CG in this kitchen features a slew of chef-inspired features sure to help you produce restaurant-quality meals in your own home. The top consists of four dual-stacked sealed burners, a griddle and charbroiler grill. The dual-stacked burners are capable of producing a BTU output ranging from 20,000 to 300 allowing you to rapidly boil a large stockpot, delicately melt chocolate and do just about everything in between. The 15,000 BTU griddle and 16,000 BTU charbroiler grill provide extra flexibility to produce any meal exactly the way it was intended to be cooked.
Directly below the cooktop is the control panel. Ordinarily, we’d just skip right over this and go to the ovens below, but you simply can’t skip over Wolf’s signature red knobs that are a fixture in so many premium kitchens. In addition, all Wolf dual fuel ranges feature a pivoting control panel that is hidden from view when not in use and pops out at an ergonomically correct angle when in use for simple operation without unnecessary bending or stooping.
Chimney Hood: Best WPP9IQT48SB
The 48-inch Best chimney hood model WPP9IQT48SB in this kitchen is a great solution for removing the heat, smoke and grease that can be produced from a professional cooking surface - particularly one with an integrated griddle and charbroiler grill like the one used in this kitchen. The hood’s exclusive iQ Blower System™ with GPS Technology is designed for the quiet, energy-efficient operation and fast smoke and odor removal. Additionally, the Heat Sentry™ system detects excessive heat and adjusts blower speeds automatically to reducing the damaging effects of high temperatures.
Built-In Microwave: Wolf MDD30TESTH
The 30-inch Wolf E Series microwave oven model MDD30TESTH in this kitchen features a drop-down door and distributes heat evenly for oven-like operation with microwave convenience. In addition, the microwave also features a Gourmet guide on the control panel, which automates the cooking process for a variety of foods allowing you to simply press start and let the microwave do the rest.
Warming Drawer: Wolf WWD30
The 30-inch Wolf warming drawer model WWD20 in this kitchen features a 1.6 cubic foot capacity, hidden controls and full-extension ball-bearing drawer glides for easy access to food inside. In this application, the warming drawer was installed with a model 808152 custom drawer front panel kit, which allows for installation with a custom wood panel that matches the rest of the kitchen cabinetry.
Dishwasher: Asko DFI663XXL
The Asko 30 Series dishwasher model DFI663XXL in this kitchen features a spacious interior that’s perfect for cleaning those large, tricky items most dishwashers struggle with. Other features include quiet 44 dB operation, three spray arms, eight wash zones and a third rack for shallow bowls and larger cutlery, spoons and other odd-shaped items.
Refrigeration System: Sub-Zero IC36IDRH Refrigerator Column and IC36FILH Freezer Column
The full-integrated refrigeration system in this kitchen consists of all-refrigerator column model IC36IDRH and all-freezer column model IC36FILH. Both units accept a custom wood panel and can be installed flush with the rest of the cabinets in the kitchen for seamless integration regardless of the design aesthetic. With 41.4 cubic feet of combined storage, this 72-inch wide refrigeration system can handle most family and entertaining needs and is backed by Sub-Zero’s heritage of premium-grade refrigeration products. Each is designed to last 20 years and all major components are subjected to extreme stress tests to ensure superior durability.
In addition to durability and design, the other major feature of any Sub-Zero refrigeration system is food preservation. Sub-Zero deploys advanced temperature and humidity control technologies along with premium door seal systems to ensure your produce, meats and more stay fresh for as long as possible.
This particular application called for the refrigerator and freezer to be installed side-by-side, which requires the use of dual installation kit model 7023628. The kit ensures a seamless installation and reduces wear and tear that could occur otherwise if two (or more) columns are installed less than two inches apart.
Under-Counter Refrigeration: Sub-Zero UW24ORH
The under-counter wine refrigerator model UW24ORH in this kitchen is designed for wine enthusiasts that are serious about wine preservation. The unit blends superior-grade materials, advanced technologies and a 70-year tradition of American craftsmanship to defeat the enemies of wine—temperature, humidity, light, and vibration. It can accommodate up to 46 bottles and allows for storing white and red wines at different temperatures to ensure the maintenance of proper serving and storage temperatures. It can even connect to your home security system to ensure your curated collection is safe from thieves -- or curious teenagers.
