Venting? - What kind of vent are you using for the range? None of the pro style ranges I have seen work with a downdraft, and that is exactly what I am looking for! Thanks in advance.

You deserve a gold star for figuring this out! No, we couldn't find a 60 inch pro-style range with down we fudged it by using two 30 inch dual fuel ranges, each with its own down draft!

Clever! So, are the down drafts behind the stoves as a separate installation, or are they integrated in the center of each stovetop?

You can just see the faucet sticking up between the ark haired boy and the dad. DW is just to the right.

Thanks for the nice comments. It's a pretty huge house- I would guess 4000-5000 sq ft.

Island dimensions? - what are the dimensions of this island? ht both levels, width, length. this is exactly what i had in mind for my kitchen. Thanks

I don't have the exact dimensions, but it is approximately 100 inches long x 50 inches deep. The eating bar is standard bar height. The work space is standard counter height. no doubt if you show this picture to your contractor or kitchen designer they could replicate based on the size of your range top and the smaller accessory sink just to the right of the cook!

Is this kitchen on the bottom floor of the house/walk out basement level? Curious because I am considering doing something like this but concerned about it being too dark.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Alternate a solid and a stripe on a two-tile wide runner. Carpet tiles are a great choice for spaces that call for an unusual size not available off the rack.
Cathy Lara added this to House Rule: Off With Your Shoes
Children are a great reason to require shoe removal indoors. According to a report by researchers at the University of Arizona, pedestrian shoes carry at least 66 million organisms, a good chunk of them bacterial. The study also found that not only do bacteria live longer on shoes than in other places, but bacteria on shoes transfers easily to tile floors.
