The client wanted to open up the front of the house, integrating the kitchen and the family room as one space. Two walls were removed and replaced with two support beams and a column, resulting in one spacious room.
In order to delineate a transition between the space, a two level kitchen island was built — adding counter space and additional seating. The soapstone counter-top, farmhouse sink and faucet pair well with the craftsman style cabinets and 4×8 backsplash tile. The pendant lights that hang over the counter and the under-cabinet LED lights add a warm glow to the space. The 12×24 porcelain tile for the floor blends well with the warm oak flooring.
