Having worked in the restaurant business, the owners wanted the features and functions of a professional kitchen. The range is situated between a corner window that gives a vantage point from which to keep track of children and animals and a french door that opens onto a dining terrace. The stainless steel counter makes children’s art projects an easy clean-up. Two sinks with an integral drainboard between them renders a countertop dish drainer unnecessary. Although it’s the center of family life, custom cabinets integrate efficient storage solutions to make this a hard working room.
