Casual By The LakeRustic Dining Room, Atlanta

New Construction-
The big challenge of this kitchen was the lack of wall cabinet space due to the large number of windows, and the client’s desire to have furniture in the kitchen . The view over a private lake is worth the trade, but finding a place to put dishes and glasses became problematic. The house was designed by Architect, Jack Jenkins and he allowed for a walk in pantry around the corner that accommodates smaller countertop appliances, food and a second refrigerator. Back at the Kitchen, Dishes & glasses were placed in drawers that were customized to accommodate taller tumblers. Base cabinets included rollout drawers to maximize the storage. The bookcase acts as a mini-drop off for keys on the way out the door. A second oven was placed on the island, so the microwave could be placed higher than countertop level on one of the only walls in the kitchen. Wall space was exclusively dedicated to appliances. The furniture pcs in the kitchen was selected and designed into the plan with dish storage in mind, but feels spontaneous in this casual and warm space.
Homeowners have grown children, who are often home. Their extended family is very large family. Father’s Day they had a small gathering of 24 people, so the kitchen was the heart of activity. The house has a very restful feel and casually entertain often.Multiple work zones for multiple people. Plenty of space to lay out buffet style meals for large gatherings.Sconces at window, slat board walls, brick tile backsplash,

    This is quite a long transoms. When we would one this long, we build it as two pieces that are jigsawed together. You assemble it together onsite, paint it and it looks just like this. The transom pattern shown here is similar to our Traditional model TR-1. You can view it here: http://goo.gl/krtWmb.

    Love it all with one small exception, the countertop on the island. Zinc, marble or soapstone would have been my preference. Great space!

    I don't understand the answer here. What are the total dimensions of the kitchen, island, dining room? Are there any photos of the kitchen wall that is not visible in this photo?

    This table was a great find by the homeowner at a shop that has since went out of business. Restoration Hardware has this same style of tables. Sorry we can't be of more help!

    The entire width is 18 x 16.5, this includes a section of cabinetry to the right of the refrigerator that you cannot see in this photo. The part you can see is 12.5 x 16.5. Hope this helps!
