Simple and User-Friendly

The expansive kitchen, separated from the great room by a counter bar, mixes the latest conveniences with modern design. For cabinetry, the design team chose dove-tailed maple with Quaker styling and bronze knobs to stay true to the simple aesthetic.

Stainless steel appliances and chrome fixtures add reflective accents. The sleek side-by-side refrigerator offers enough storage for family-size meals. A large glass-front wine cooler ensures the proper chill. ANd for afternoon cocktails, an ice maker is conveniently placed to the bar sink. The gas cooktop features a downdraft vent, eliminating the need for an obtrusive hood.

Appliances: KitchenAid. Cabinets: Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry.
