Rocky River Kitchen

Framed by a large, arched wall, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is where the family shares its meals and is the center of entertaining. The focal point of the kitchen is the 6'x12' island, where six people can comfortably wrap around one end for dining or visiting, while the other end is reserved for food prep. Nestled to one side, there is an intimate wet bar that serves double duty as an extension to the kitchen and can cater to those at the island as well as out to the family room. Extensive work areas and storage, including a scullery, give this kitchen over-the-top versatility. Designed by the architect, the cabinets reinforce the Craftsman motif from the legs of the island to the detailing in the cabinet pulls. The beams at the ceiling provide a twist as they are designed in two tiers allowing a lighting monorail to past between them and provide for hidden lighting above to reflect down from the ceiling.

The cabinets are really nice, maybe one shade lighter. I like the handles, the finish is preferable to brushed aluminum for me. The accent stripe in the floor is very nice as well. The overall color is a bit to warm for me, but I like the feel of the whole, just brighter.

This is our favorite kitchen so far. Our concerns are if this was a wood floor it would be too dark... The tile backsplash behind the stove is also too busy (but ok because it is not as many square feet) Cindy likes the Tile backsplash.
