"This kitchen offered an amazing wooded view and a high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams; however, its white cabinetry and traditional style didn't fit in with the otherwise contemporary home. In addition, the homeowners' needs had changed over time. As busy parents, they desired a more functional space that would accommodate two active teenagers who also love to entertain."

"A highlight of the new space is a unique center island featuring a curvaceous perimeter to give it a softer shape. It provides a conversation-friendly seating area and the perfect gathering spot to take in the wooded view. In addition to a place to gather and dine, the island provides increased counter space and a large double sink for food prep and clean up. Like the rest of the space, the island features cherry cabinetry with a rich, deep stain that offsets the cork flooring, along with stainless steel pulls."
