Addition: Kitchen

This house had a useless back porch, oddly configured kitchen, and walls all over the place so the kitchen was completely blocked off from the rest of the house. The renovation included a two story addition to expand the kitchen and the master suite, add a family room and make this space ideal for family and entertaining.

Our apologies for answering this incorrectly. This project was completed a few years ago. The counter stools are from Restoration Hardware, however they probably aren't in inventory.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Furnish the island like a dining table. “Instead of using standard-sized stools at an island area, use an oversized, stylish design that allow your guests to sit as comfortably through a meal as they would at a formal dining table,” says interior designer Claire Ownby. “Using an upgraded or plush fabric on the stools can make the seating feel more luxurious.”
