Working in collaboration with Geers Bros Builders, creating a space for a family with young children that was functional yet stylish was the challenge Christine was willing to take on. As a family that loves the natural elements of the outdoors it was only fitting to pull the outdoors in. The classic white cabinets were done on the Newport door style to fit the craftsman feel of the home. To incorporate the great outdoors, barn was used to create a custom range hood as well as on the back and sides of the island. The tin ceiling above the island adds a unique visual interest. Step into this kitchen and you may never want to leave!
