Opening the kitchen layout and repositioning the island allowed the space to seamlessly relate to the adjacent rooms and created a work triangle undisturbed by traffic flow.  The newly designed space gave uncluttered vistas into the wooded forest, which was echoed in the medium stained custom cabinets.  The open space and warm cabinetry strengthened the connection with the outside creating a kitchen that was spacious yet welcoming.     Photographer: Morgan Howarth
