With a strong focus on function and natural light, this family of five wanted an impeccable, utilitarian kitchen. Natural materials, including walnut veneer cabinets and monochromatic Marmoleum flooring are accented by encaustic cement tiles from Cle Tile.

A wall of cabinets, opposite a large picture window, stores the day-to-day kitchen items, with deep roll-out pantry shelves, a coffee bar and large cabinet drawers. The large peninsula acts as an informal dining space and separates the kitchen from the semi formal dining space.
