New kitchen breaks with the trend of open living space.
Full of Personality: This kitchen has everything the owners need, all the style they could want, and nothing more.
Great Ideas: clever kitchen island, reclaimed barn wood, concrete with glass inlay, vessel sink, graduated drawers, and a secret bar.
Spec: Custom burner layout, kitchen workstation, smart cooktop, teak shower bench, secret faucet feature, metal shower pans, prefab pizza oven, textured basins, and modern artisanal tiles.
Editor's Note: look for the designer’s restraint when it comes to colors, textures, and materials.
