Open Kitchen with Wood Cabinets

After: A Blissful Retreat

With walls removed and the ceiling raised, the space acquired the "bones" needed for a light-filled kitchen outfitted in materials chosen for durable, rather than trendy, appeal. Two sinks, two refrigerators (one in a base cabinet), and two separate ovens ensure flexibility and convenience for an avid cook.

The Details
Cabinets: Custom-made face-frame cabinets with partial-overlay doors and extra-deep crown molding show off the combined beauties of birch and red alder.

Workspace: A tiered peninsula with granite countertop and breakfast bar provides another work station closer to a gathering spot for guests.

Lighting: Remote-control skylights with shades admit or block light year-round and, when open, are a welcome means of releasing fierce summer heat.

Shelving: Angled display shelves facing outward help link the new dining area and expanded kitchen.
