An Entertaining Kitchen

"The client entertains not only for friends-in which case they may have several caterers working in the kitchen-but they also have family in town who may be helping cook in the kitchen for special gatherings. The clients wanted a large entertaining kitchen that was also quaint enough for a small breakfast table.

"We designed the kitchen to have multiple prep and clean-up centers to allow those within to function most efficiently. The kitchen was designed in such a way to reflect the openness of the house while at the same time showcasing an intimate appeal. With the shape of the kitchen, we were able to insert an island and flank it with display cabinets. The display cabinets at the back of the island add charm to the large space and set aside the work area from the more leisurely dining area. They create a nice backdrop for the small Stickley table and chairs, which pulls together a quaint effect."
