This lake house required some opening up. Facing the lake, the homeowner wanted to be able to have a view while cooking and entertaining friends. Even though the added windows took from the storage of the upper cabinets, we added additional cabinets throughout the kitchen area to make it larger and more open. The Corian countertop created the perfect amount of contrast to all of the bright natural light coming in through the new windows. The cork floor gives a nice natural feeling to the room and brings the outdoors in. We continued the cork flooring into the dining room to join the two rooms. The new pendant lighting lights up the island creating a great ambiance and making the prep work of cooking easier.
