A beautiful addition to the family home highlighted the need for a cohesive entertaining space at the heart of the house. Removing the walls between the original kitchen and dining room, as well as expanded openings into the living room gave our clients the gathering space they needed. Crisp white uppers paired with a warm stone gray finish on maple, the new kitchen features ample storage in the perimeter as well as a shallow furniture piece on the opposite wall. The cool white quartz top on the sink and range wall compliment the drama of the pattern on the oversized island top. Anxious to seat family and friends, as well as providing the anchor to the enlarged space, the island houses a beverage center, microwave and seating for six, incorporating dramatic support legs – one of the client’s favorite design feature.
