Young couple recently purchased their first home in Centreville VA and were looking to do some updating and adding more storage for the kitchen.

  • linen color cabinetry with a contrasting Java Island,
  • relocating the stove to east wall from the old island
  • Moving a side wall into adjacent office to create wider aisles and implement bigger island with overhang to accommodate several seating stools
  • Relocating the fridge on the outer wall to create longer counters on both side of stove
  • Placing the microwave in Island to be able
  • Professional range & tapered stainless hood with high powered exhaust fan to facilitate asian/Middle eastern cooking
