The homeowner of this lovely home, originally built in 1983, desired a larger functioning kitchen with a center island that would become the entertainment hub of the home. The new center island creates a beautiful focal point and gathering space with bar seating and a rustic iron lantern fixture. Both the existing window in the breakfast nook and window above the kitchen sink were enlarged to bring in more natural light. Updated stainless steel appliances and white porcelain fixtures create an ultimate functioning kitchen and balance nicely with the simple tone on tone color scheme of soft grays and whites. The warm gray cabinets enhance the natural character of the quartzite countertops. A wet bar with small sink and additional refrigeration for wine and beverages was also added. The kitchen is now the main hub between living and dining that makes entertaining and everyday living enjoyable and relaxing.
