Island Dreams traditional-kitchen

Island Dreams

An active family of five came to us with a challenge. Help them create a family kitchen to accommodate their busy lifestyle and love of cooking. Traffic flow and work areas that kept the children involved, yet out of the way, were critical issues the client needed solved.

The result was a stunning, warm, efficient kitchen with bump-out to allow for a new island and homework and office area. Custom cabinetry and new lighting finished the room with both style and storage.

What is the footlatch for? Also, the vent under the cabinet? - There appears to be a footlatch under the cabinet. What does it open? Also, under the cabinet, there is a vent. Is it a furnace intake or a vent to allow air circulation? How does the pullout open? Thank you.

It’s hard to see but the cabinets have a light glaze applied and the color is more off white than the pictures indicate. The finish is called Cashmere, by the Decor cabinet Company (Talora Brand).

If you look at some of the close up images, you can see the glaze on the edges of the doors, and it depicts the color a bit better.

The floors are a Multi-color Tumbled Travertine in a Versailles pattern. They add a lot of interest and color. We also have in-floor heating for our cold Minnesota winters! Thank you for the compliment!
