What Houzz contributors are saying:
A common feature of many renovated kitchens is a shiny new stainless steel range hood. But feeling that one would stick out like a sore thumb, Paquin opted for a custom range hood made of plaster. “It blends into the wall and doesn’t demand too much attention,” she says. The brass pot filler below the hood is a stylish and functional touch.Both the homeowners are doctors and regularly use foot pedals to operate the sinks at work. As a nod to their work life, Paquin installed working stainless steel foot pedals below the sink at floor level — if you look closely, you can just make one of them out. The pedals, one for hot water and the other for cold, were made by a company that specializes in plumbing fixtures for hospitals and factories. The large center island provides plenty of storage with a mixture of cabinets and drawers. It also includes a built-in microwave and space for two counter stools at one end.
