The mark of great design is whether it stands the test of time. Here, we revisit our favorite kitchens from the past six years of Westchester Home. We think they’ve gotten even better with age.

HAMPTONS INSPIRED Armonk
Designer: Architect Val Florio, Sag Harbor
The cathedral ceiling, wenge cabinets, white CesarStone counters, and sleek furnishings give the kitchen contemporary chic. The family considers it their home's epicenter with room enough for cooking, eating, socializing, and doing homework. The pizza-ready Gaggenau oven, 60-inch Wolf range, two 48-inch Sub-Zeros, and foot-pedal-operated prep sink also make it a chef´s dream.

The sophisticated countertop is Silestone-brand quartz, which has the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute’s indoor air-quality certification. The Kashmere cleft slate floor retains the winter sun’s heat all through the night. And the work triangle is so well designed that four cooks can work comfortably together: green and efficient. The backsplash behind the Viking range is made of custom ceramic tiles.

A TOUCH OF PROVENCE Harrison
A seamless blend of rustic and sleek, old and new, gives this kitchen panache: cabinet doors made of burlap covered with chicken wire next to a stainless Sub-Zero. An old European door was repurposed into an oversize table that seats 12, while the ceiling’s reclaimed beams were found in Southampton.

HOT CHOCOLATE Scarsdale
Designer: Jeff Eakley of Bilotta Kitchens
This contemporary kitchen features sleek Artcraft white oak cabinetry with a balsamic stain, CeasarStone's "Blizzard" countertops, Bisazza's "Nefertiti" mosaic glass tiles, dark oak floors, and stainless-steel appliances, toe kicks, and pulls.
