Reconfiguring the main floor layout with a more open concept allowed for the addition of a powder room and a larger dining area, but the key focus of this renovation was the kitchen, which blended the owner's modern taste with the traditional style of the home. The rich, dark wood of the custom millwork is paired with grey cabinets and a stainless steel soffit, and the lighting fixture adds an industrial feel and a unique focal point for the room. Several features were added with the avid home cook in mind, including a premium gas range, high-capacity double sinks, and a custom butcher-block island that is not only mobile, but also includes an innovative compost compartment.
