Our latest custom kitchen feature is a must share. This kitchen was designed not only for an extremely busy
family with 3 kids and 3 large dogs, but it was also important to our clients that we design around their very
large extended family who gathers in their kitchen weekly. There had to be enough room for at least 3-4 cooks
in the kitchen at the same time with universal working stations that could simultaneously act as a prep, cook or
clean-up space at any given time. To boot, Dad stands well over 6 feet tall where his one main request was to
not hit his head on the range hood while cooking! Challenge accepted.
Let us take you on a tour of how this process began:
BEFORE: These before images show a very unutilized kitchen. While the footprint of the space is large, you
can see only half of the kitchen was used, leaving a large open space in the middle. The small island, off-
centered sink and off-centered range, left the kitchen feeling even smaller, off-balanced and busy.
DESIGN PROCESS: At River Woodcraft every kitchen client gets a photo image of their dream kitchen. The
imagination is just beginning! A full collaboration of your must-have’s along with our expert layout and design
skills, makes for the perfect kitchen design recipe.
AFTER: It’s all in the details, that make you say “Why didn’t I think of that?”. These final images display all the
design elements that make a kitchen like this so grand. We’re proud to have not only designed this kitchen, but
fabricated the custom cabinetry, ceiling detail, metal range hood, window seat bench (not shown) and the post
and beam wraps.
