This u-shaped traditional kitchen features peninsula seating, open shelving and perfectly painted white Shaker cabinets in the CliqStudios Dayton style. The simple crown molding in the kitchen complements, without competing against, the traditional stacked crown molding in the adjacent room.
In this kitchen a different strategy solved the problem. With a peninsula used for the sink cabinetry — set perpendicular to the wall — the whole issue of high cabinets and a low sill is avoided. A window seat, however, fits neatly under the “problem” window and is balanced on the left by a standard-height cabinet.
