Clever Islands

Go Long

Alder Kitchen Cabinets

"This huge, 14- by 6-foot island includes a sink, wine rack and refrigerator at one end that serves as a wet bar for entertaining. The rest is just all surface with cabinet storage, allowing for ample space for food prep and multiple cooks, like when the homeowner gets together with all of her sisters to make Christmas cookies. With seating for four, the homeowners, who are empty nesters, eat 99 percent of their meals there.

 

"The island's Crystal cabinets are an alder wood. They coordinate well with the India Mahogany granite countertops and with the L-shape perimeter's painted cabinetry, which features brown highlights and distressing. The alder wood was continued elsewhere, in a back entry bench and the home's entertainment center and desk."
