Meyerland – Waynesboro Kitchen
The owners chose to leave open, lit shelving for their family photo gallery in this corner of the kitchen. The reeded glass fronts on the nearby cabinetry make an equally bright display with the aid of recessed lighting added. The glass tile mosaic backsplash continues around the room under this portion of upper cabinetry. The beverage cooler is a short reach away from the kitchen desk area, which offers ethernet for the laptop.
This well-illuminated kitchen underwent some structural changes as walls came down and the laundry was shrunk to allow for a larger kitchen. A tankless water heater replaced the ubiquitous tank. Electrical and gas lines were run under the mixed-size, stone-look tile floors to allow for a gas stove top on the island. The island sports more of the beautiful granite from the countertops and provides ample space for dining-in or chatting over a couple glasses of wine. Illuminous glass tile in the backsplash winds its way around the kitchen. This is an extremely inviting culinary destination!
Moving walls between the kitchen and den allowed an island to emerge, replete with eye-catching pendants, a gas cook top, granite counter and bar space for eating/entertaining. Working in the classic triangle is a breeze. Notice the warm glow above the cabinets, especially welcoming at night. The refrigerator is cabinet-depth, allowing for a built-in approach that matches the pre-fab, pre-finished cabinets. The stainless steel appliances match the hardware and the farm sink adds another touch to the great personality of this warm and inviting kitchen.
This photo offers a view from the kitchen sink out into the other common areas of the house. The design delivers clean lines, good sight lines, an exceptional work triangle (see other photos), and a warmth that is inviting to all who enter. The lighting above and below the cabinets contributes to the effect.
