Everybody always ends up in the kitchen. This young family wanted a gathering space that would fit their family with room for friends.

Part of a total home renovation, we picked a classic cabinet style with an Arts and Crafts feel. I added a canopy over the sink to match the one housing the range hood. A nice wide aisle between the countertop and the island provides plenty of room for cooks while the opposite side of the island provides lots of space for entertaining.
