"As the owner of several businesses including a high-end Italian restaurant, the kitchen was an important feature for this client's new home. This family is an extremely active one with three growing children, several dogs and cats, and a mother-in-law suite in the lower level of the house. A generously spaced room was certainly called for.
"Sturdy appliances, with pots and pans handy and accessible, were an important goal. Large expanses of countertop, two sinks, large refrigeration, several trash and recycling areas, three types of seating options in the room were far from luxuries-they were very necessary for all concerned to enjoy and use the space at once. A cozy two-way fireplace with club chairs is part of the kitchen, and a useful desk/TV/message/computer area all in one allow many activities to be carried on in the space at once. Several people can be cooking and/or eating in the kitchen at one time with lots of elbow room for all."
