Bland All-White Kitchen Receives the Family-Friendly Treatment

This kitchen was transformed into a family-friendly kitchen with a two-tier island perfect for the kids.

What was once an all-white kitchen with an inefficient large island is now a warm, inviting space with a two-tier granite island that makes room for both food prep and family conversation. Luxurious features include radiant heating in the tile floor and pro-style appliances like the six-burner gas range and double ovens. The gas range has an extra-low setting that goes on and off making it perfect for sauce or other food that needs to stay warm for extended periods of time. The integrated dishwasher sits up higher off the floor and contains three shelves instead of two. To give the space more of a furniture-style feel, designer Jerry Hankins incorporated three different cabinet finishes, including stained chestnut on the main cabinetry, black paint on the island and an ivory stain on the pantry.
