What Houzz contributors are saying:

Because the kitchen is a small space, Parker wanted to allow for as much natural light as possible. "It's hard to describe the quality of sunlight in the Pacific Northwest, but it's often muted and filtered by layers of cloud," he says. "So the quantity and placement of windows was crucial." Parker concentrated the windows in the kitchen to the east and the north, which captures morning light from the patio and garden. "The small size of our house made the connection to the outside that much more important," he says. For additional lighting, Parker installed pendants over the counter from Rejuvenation.

I like the simplicity and the center work surface. Lots of windows, but I would like upper cabinets. Mark: Not a fan here... prefer a more versatile island with sink and counter seating. However is a simple one were mobile to provide a tighter work space, I would consider.

All of the cabinets in the kitchen were custom designed by Parker and Sidhu. Although stylistically they were inspired by famed architecture firm Greene and Greene, they also put a huge emphasis on reclaimed materials. "Using reclaimed woods saved on material costs, but added a lot of time," Parker says. Reclaimed fir was used for the cabinetry, shelving and window frames. The flooring is made of salvaged oak topnail, which blends with the rest of the home. Where reclaimed materials weren't used, the couple opted for hard-wearing materials such as the honed black granite countertops and the backsplash from the Ann Sacks Element series
