The owner of this 2002 tract home wanted to replace the traditional island kitchen and breakfast nook with a new gourmet kitchen that would make a statement while entertaining guests. The revamped kitchen is a chef’s dream, with top-of-the-line industrial components including a 48” range with pot filler and commercial refrigerator. Two farmhouse sinks and ample countertop space allow plenty of room for preparation, while open shelving, no upper cabinets and coffered ceilings with bold light fixtures enhance the airy, expansive space. Instead of the nook, the large center island provides seating for eight and additional storage. New folding window systems combine convenience and style to create a pass-through to the outside barbecue station.
