Today’s lifestyle calls for an open floor plan. When the walls come down, however, a designer is challenged to create graceful transitions across food prep, dining and living areas. The answer? Built-in furniture-style cabinet features.

A graceful transition between cooking and living areas, this furniture-style kitchen island includes a bookcase. The island is built with maple semi-custom cabinets in a traditional raised-panel door style. The constrast in style and finish with the kitchen perimeter establishes the furniture effect, enhanced by solid hardwood shelf supports, ogee molding in the toekick area, a valance and decorative end panels.

The Shaker-style perimeter cabinets also include furniture features, a bumped-out cooking center with spice drawers and furniture feet and, across the room, bumped-out base and wall cabinets in a built-in buffet.
