A 4-foot work island – ideal for gardening tasks, food prep or crafting projects – is topped with quartz and features an oversized farm sink with sliding hardwood cutting board.

Kohler’s articulated faucet features five pivoting joints that accommodate a wide variety of tasks.

The sculptural design and vibrant cherry color of LG’s Energy Star-rated, front-load washer and large-capacity dryer bring elegance to the space. Giclee prints in keeping with the home’s wooded setting pop against a neutral background.

Canvas tote bags are displayed at the ready for transporting groceries, laundry or gardening supplies.
