his traditional kitchen is the winner of a National Association of the Remodeling Industry Contractor of the Year Award. To improve the ability to entertain, the clients wanted to open up the kitchen to the living room. This request came with some significant obstacles. To open the space, we had to reroute the HVAC to the second floor and install support beams to replace the structural walls that were removed. The result is a beautifully open and connected space that is ready to entertain in style. The raised island creates a welcoming place for guests to gather and converse.
The stone backsplash and fiery pendant lighting brings a warm feeling to the entire area. Installing a microwave drawer saved counter space and increased the amount of wall cabinetry. Spectacular granite countertops tie the dark wood cabinets on the island to the cherry cabinets around the perimeter. What a comfortable and friendly place to relax and entertain!
