PROBLEMS: The original interior was a mashup of anything and everything, with traditional-looking maple cabinets and granite-tile countertops. A large desk filled most of one wall, and a very small pantry closet was tucked into a corner by the doorway.
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: The contemporary Craftsman kitchen now blends with the home’s exterior, which is what the homeowners wanted. It has a “professional” range and hood, a pot filler, and a built-in refrigerator. There are also built-in pantry cabinets with lit display on top, and an island with a custom soffit to add visual interest (and break up the 10-foot ceiling). Improved lighting fits the family’s lifestyle perfectly, enhances the kitchen’s function and appearance. The desk was moved to an unused corner of the adjacent family room, where the children can do homework.
This project won a regional award for creative design.
