A Big Island traditional-kitchen

A Big Island

The original owners of this house had long surpassed the original kitchens layout and usefulness. 30 years and the changing needs of a kitchen had finally caught up with this otherwise impressive home. The biggest problem with the old kitchen was a large peninsula that angled out into the center of the room, virtually cutting off the breakfast nook from the room and making getting into the pantry and fridge very inefficient.
The new kitchen design uses the long length of the room to it's advantage, by allowing for an extended island which connected the breakfast nook to the kitchen making it all flow together. At just over 11 feet long the homeowner initially had some serious doubts about the proposed islands size, but after some measuring and remeasuring(and some coaxing) she was convinced it would work. And now that it's all done, she couldn't be happier! (and that makes us happy)
