Classic Charm

After
Custom cabinetry with fine detailing gives the new kitchen architectural "bones" and traditional charm. White ceramic subway tile on the backsplash and an ogee edging on the solid-surface countertops are classic; stainless steel appliances are a nod to the new.

The Details
Cabinets: Upper cabinets feature handsome crown molding and multipaned doors with wavy water glass; a French door with plain glass repeats the cabinets' design.

Appliances: Moving the range closer to the sink results in a tighter, more efficient work core. Bar-level counters at either end of the kitchen bracket the space; near the sitting area, guests often stand at the bar and chat with the cook.
