To enhance the interior placement of the kitchen, we created a dramatic custom light well detail above the island. This element provides a strong visual anchor and literally funnels natural light into the space during the day and soft ambient light at night.
We are incorporating desks and built-in TVs along with casual dining tables and soft seating. Kitchens have always been one of the most important rooms of a house but now they blur the lines of what is traditionally found in other areas of the home.
The trend we are seeing is that the kitchen is the hub of the home for our clients. It’s where families gather not only to prepare meals, but where children do their homework, adults pay bills and everyone watches television and entertains.
It’s where companies that supply the kitchen and bath trade showcase their wares to interior designers, retailers and dealers, architects, builders, and remodelers. KBIS is part of Design and Construction Week with the NAHB International Builders Show.
