Kitchen island: clean by design
Written by: Amy Howell Hirt
Spring is the time for new beginnings, especially in the home. We shampoo the carpets, reorganize the basement, or maybe just find a home for the odds-and-ends living on the kitchen island.
But early one spring, a Sharonville couple realized it was going to take more than cleaning to create their long-awaited fresh slate. After slowly remaking their traditional home for more than a decade, John and Sheila set their sights on the heart of the first floor: the kitchen. Through an extensive remodeling project, they cleared the visual clutter and created an open space that's clean by design.
Working with Matt Byers, designer and owner of Montgomery-based Evolo Design, the couple drafted a design that delivered an open floor plan and sleek modern style, but presented some challenges that required creative solutions.
