Stealing the spotlight

Kitchen renovation makes room for a family and adds plenty of convenient appliances for an amateur cook

An espresso glaze adds character to the white perimeter cabinets and contributes to the old-world feel of the space.

A backsplash comprised of tumbled stone adds to the regal feel of this kitchen and highlights the Viking cooktop.

This kitchen design overlooks the nearby family room, which is accented with thick wood ceiling beams.

Two kitchen islands allow for cooking and gathering to take place simultaneously. The homeowners also find that now they can be prepping dinner at one island while the kids have fun making cookies at the other.

This much-desired renovation included removing a 25-foot wall to open up the main living space, a feature that the wife wanted so she could still chat with everybody while cooking.

This prep kitchen island features cherry cabinetry with a distressed finish. A stool is tucked subtly off to the side for any little helpers looking for a perch while mom is cooking.

Typhoon Bordeaux granite tops the counters throughout this kitchen. The owners find the sleek surfaces surprisingly easy to clean after a long day spent cooking.

This center island houses a recycling center, a mixer shelf and this square undermount prep sink, all handy extras that the owner puts to good use when cooking.

Decorative stone border pieces create an elegant backsplash in this kitchen design. The tumbled stone material adds to the old-world feel the owners were striving for.
