Island for 5...or more!

This Huntington Woods Remodel was a total blast to work on for this family
The cabinetry I designed with here is Quality's Manchester Maple in Dulce stain
Isn't this just a perfect island for a family?
The island is approximately 39" wide by 128" long!!!
Allows for seating of 5
Yes, FIVE!
The family tells me not only do they enjoy their new kitchen but the island has become a gathering place for cooking together, doing crafts and still leaves plenty of space for Mom/Dad to work/cook uninterrupted.


These stool adjust in height to reach the island height of 36" high

Here is a "BEFORE"
And the "AFTER" of that same wall
We embraced the two smaller windows by lifting them higher off the ground so we could run cabinetry underneath and using the wall space as our cooktop focal point.
The family loves their induction cooktop
By running cabinetry and tile up to the ceiling, it makes their 8 ft ceiling appear much taller

Wait..is the main sink not facing a window?! 
Yes...people, it's ok...you can do that and have it look appropriate and work beautifully
We embraced it by creating an interesting wall of balanced upper cabinetry, lifting the glass cabinet above the sink up to allow for comfort while at the sink.
Function wise, it's perfect

By pairing tall verticals, such as the Refrigerator by the double oven/micro keeps from breaking up countertop space  AND allows for quick reheating of meals

My client LOVED her kitchen aid top oven/micro/toaster unit with full size oven below


A small 'veggie' sink equipped with a garbage disposal makes prep help a breeze

We special ordered 6 pullouts for this client to meet their needs of organizing smaller items in their pantry
Snack storage at the end of the island is easy for children to reach and help themselves
It's easy to keep Kosher with proper space and organization
 

Double Trash/Rec pullout

In addition to the kitchen, we converted an old pantry closet into a family room desk area.
It's multi purpose of crafting, homework, bill paying, emailing, etc suites any family well
