Sound design and honest comfort. Showplace cabinetry in classic red oak makes this roomy kitchen as comfortable as a favorite pair of well-worn jeans.

The cathedral arch of the Hillcrest door contributes a touch of traditional charm to wall cabinets, while simple slab drawer headers and Covington base cabinets round out the theme of unassuming comfort and honesty. The warm Hazelnut finish is a perennial favorite on red oak, bringing oak's characteristic grain patterns to the fore.

Elements of sound kitchen design are everywhere you look. The angled sink base is beneath a pair of matching windows, creating a central focal point. Note how the subtle setback of the sink base adds immensely to the visual appeal of the room design.

Solid-surface countertop workspace is abundant, and strategically spaced among and between the sink, dishwasher and range.

The large peninsula delineates the kitchen from the adjacent dining area, and provides much useful space for food preparation and serving.

Note how the Hillcrest door can be modified to create a handsome mullioned glass door. The graceful cathedral arch of the door frame projects the impression of finely-crafted traditional furniture.

Red oak is a time-honored favorite in American furniture and cabinetry construction. It is characterized by a prominent, distinctive grain that may show tiny rays and flowing patterns. Red oak suggests permanence and a respect for traditional values.

The compact and functional desk area creates a perfect place to plan a shopping list or keep up with household paperwork. The adjacent display cabinet showcases collectibles with its large mullioned glass doors, while at the same time contributes generous drawer and base storage. Note how the creative placement of an arched valence in the toe kick area of the base cabinet adds an elegant touch to the ensemble.

A clever use of space pairs an elevated dishwasher with a microwave in a layout that is both highly efficient and visually pleasing.
