Fresh, Craftsman Kitchen With Dual Islands

With the homeowners healthy, vegetarian lifestyle, this kitchen is truly put to work every day. Twin islands offer a place for prepping as well as dining, and the beautiful rift-cut oak cabinetry provide ample storage for kitchen essentials.

Seating for Two at Small Kitchen Island

Two can dine at this charming kitchen island. Matching rift-cut oak cabinets pair with light gray quartz countertops to complete the fresh design.

Kitchen Features Twin Islands & Custom Butcher Block

Durable quartz countertops grace both the kitchen perimeter and the twin islands, creating practical and abundant work spaces for multiple users. A local woodworker created an original butcher block pedestal from a fallen local tree, with a removable chopping block set into it. This creates a functional and beautiful detail at the end of the kitchen space - and truly celebrates Lauren Levant’s innovative approach to designing a healthy, environmentally-friendly Craftsman kitchen design.

Stunning Craftsman Kitchen With Rift-Cut Oak Cabinetry

The rift-cut oak wood cabinetry was resourced from a LEED Certified manufacturer that utilizes responsible forestry and manufacturing processes. Handmade, glazed ceramic tiles weave through open shelving for ready access to continually used items. Durable quartz countertops grace both the kitchen perimeter and the twin islands, creating practical and abundant work spaces for multiple users.

Updated, Craftsman Kitchen With Light Oak Flooring

A bank of tall pantries balance the room without taking up much square footage. Throughout the kitchen and the adjacent living space, wide-plank, white oak flooring creates a clean base that is easy to maintain and is friendly to the back, legs and feet while cooking.

Ample Storage in Craftsman Kitchen

This project provided an opportunity to bring some authentic Craftsman ideals to this graciously aging bungalow home in a fresh and innovative way. The owners care deeply about using appropriate details and materials that would be originally appropriate to their home. They also made it a priority to source materials manufactured in an environmentally friendly and health-conscious manner, and to employ the talents of local craftsmen wherever possible.

Dual Kitchen Islands and Dark Oak Cabinetry

With their healthy, vegetarian lifestyle, this kitchen is truly put to work every day. The design features two islands: one island is reserved for seating and storage, while the other houses a prep sink and a very special butcher block pedestal that Lauren Levant designed especially for this project. Made from her sketch, a local woodworker created an original butcher block pedestal from a fallen local tree, with a removable chopping block set into it.

Rolled Steel Range Hood

One of the focal points of this kitchen is the dramatic, rolled steel hearth hood, crafted by a local steelworker with exposed details appropriate to the Craftsman aesthetic.

Custom, Removable Chopping Block

A local woodworker created an original butcher block pedestal from a fallen local tree, with a removable chopping block set into it. This creates a functional and beautiful detail at the end of the kitchen space - and truly celebrates Lauren Levant’s innovative approach to designing a healthy, environmentally friendly Craftsman kitchen.

Custom Butcher Block Pedestal

Designer Lauren Levant chose a local fallen tree to act as a butcher block pedestal, which added to the Craftsman aesthetic of the kitchen design.

Kitchen Features Storage Station

A sorting and storage station helps the homeowners keep kitchen clutter away from food prep areas.

Beautiful, Craftsman Kitchen With Rift-Cut Oak Cabinetry

Even the refrigerator is disguised to look like the cabinetry. To the left, tall pantry cabinets store everything you need for cooking. The designer says, “Shallow pantry cabinets are one of my favorite kitchen design tricks - they hold a tremendous amount of items within easy view."

Subzero Fridge Blends in With Kitchen Cabinets

The homeowners love the circulation of the space, the abundant storage and the sophisticated equipment - including double ovens, a large gas cooktop and a 42” French door Subzero.
