Ever since they bought their home, this couple envisioned their Kitchen opening into an under-utilized room next to the Kitchen.
Designed by Lee Meyer Architects, the plan creates an open Kitchen, featuring a center island with an induction cook top and attached Cherry table/seating area. Cherry cabinetry with crown molding is featured throughout. Photos by Greg Schmidt.
