Several features make this kitchen stand out, from the oversized island with stylish waterfall cascade of the quartz countertop to the marble backsplash in classic herringbone pattern. Clean lines in the transitional cabinetry style provide a timeless appeal and double helix mullions in the glass doors add a touch of class to the glassware display in the beverage center.

The cabinetry provides plenty of storage to keep the countertops clear. The white and gray palette provides a clean backdrop to the adjacent family room and family dining area.

Custom Designed Kitchen

The custom home builder was purchasing building materials from National Lumber when the homeowners asked for custom changes to suit their style. Amy Mood met with the homeowners and determined they prefer a transitional style. She then designed all areas using cabinetry to meet their family's practical needs, making their custom home suit them perfectly.

The kitchen in this open floor plan anchors the space with both style and practicality. With two small children, the family wanted a design that will accommodate their family for years to come. The large island with waterfall quartz countertop is eminently practical with plenty of work space for meal preparations, seating for casual family meals or projects, plus extra storage tucked into the cabinetry behind the seating. When entertaining, the island becomes the perfect buffet area.

With a dedicated beverage center next to the island, refreshments are handy for everyday needs or entertaining.

The work triangle of refrigerator, sink and stove is efficient to save steps and make tasks easier. Whether putting away groceries, or taking out meal ingredients, everything just makes sense. Adjacent to the stove is an under counter microwave plus toaster oven on the counter, ready for every type of meal or snack preparations.
