Casual By The Lake

New Construction-
The big challenge of this kitchen was the lack of wall cabinet space due to the large number of windows, and the client’s desire to have furniture in the kitchen . The view over a private lake is worth the trade, but finding a place to put dishes and glasses became problematic. The house was designed by Architect, Jack Jenkins and he allowed for a walk in pantry around the corner that accommodates smaller countertop appliances, food and a second refrigerator. Back at the Kitchen, Dishes & glasses were placed in drawers that were customized to accommodate taller tumblers. Base cabinets included rollout drawers to maximize the storage. The bookcase acts as a mini-drop off for keys on the way out the door. A second oven was placed on the island, so the microwave could be placed higher than countertop level on one of the only walls in the kitchen. Wall space was exclusively dedicated to appliances. The furniture pcs in the kitchen was selected and designed into the plan with dish storage in mind, but feels spontaneous in this casual and warm space.
Homeowners have grown children, who are often home. Their extended family is very large family. Father’s Day they had a small gathering of 24 people, so the kitchen was the heart of activity. The house has a very restful feel and casually entertain often.Multiple work zones for multiple people. Plenty of space to lay out buffet style meals for large gatherings.Sconces at window, slat board walls, brick tile backsplash,
Bathroom Vanity, Mudroom, & Kitchen Space designed by Tara Hutchens CKB, CBD (Designer at Splash Kitchens & Baths) Finishes and Styling by Cathy Winslow (owner of Splash Kitchens & Baths) Photos by Tom Harper.

The cook top is across from the island to the left of the refrigerator. You just can't see it in the picture. There is also another oven there as well.

The client did the floors on their own with their contractor. We do not know, but yes they are very pretty!
The island top is Distressed American Cherry.

@Stacy Baldwin - you get it exactly right! Distressed American Cherry in plank style construction with our standard waterproof/food safe Waterlox custom finish.

Great design - people ask us about this one all the time, too!

Oven on island - Hi! Beautiful kitchen! Especially love the countertop. May I ask if there are any special accommodations to consider when placing an oven in the island? Like counter height, insulation or materials. Thanks so much for sharing.

It depends on if it's electric or gas. Consult an appliance supplier beforehand and they will be able to help you.
