Designing for How You Imagine Your Home Will Feel

Imagine how cloistered and confined these owners felt when this kitchen was walled off from the living and dining room and had an 93-1/2" high ceiling! By opening up the spaces, adding three new windows--including the glass block "window" behind the cooktop, playing with countertop levels (to reflect the ascending lines), tossing in a bit of whimsey, this is now an entertaining, functional space. The hardwood floors are bird's-eye maple. Cabinetry is in cherry. Note these features on the refrigerator elevation: the arc across the top of the doors and the arrangement of the drawers. Both illustrate how Landon's background as a cabinetmaker affects his spatial solutions.
