In the extensive remodel of this kitchen, the door to the dining room was relocated allowing enough wall space to fit a 48-inch Wolf range, faux-finished hood and an L-shaped island with lots of countertop space and seating for three.
In this gourmet kitchen, two open shelves and a countertop are surrounded by cabinets, making an efficient frame for photographs, artwork and more. The pale gray backsplash is a striking contrast with the cabinets' dark wood.

This eat in chef's kitchen is every cook's dream. The elegant wood of the cabinets blends perfectly with the rich exposed beams in the ceiling that help to give the space the Moroccan inspired look the homeowners desired.

A large kitchen island with a huge prep sink adds plenty of counter space for food preparation and serving, while gourmet appliances make cooking easy-whether it's for ten people or a hundred.
A built-in wine refrigerator turns this butler's pantry into a convenient storage and serving area. The kitchen of this 1920s home got a glam update that preserves its historic feel. Furniture-style feet on the cabinetry are among the period touches that bring character to the space.
