The main objective for a Potomac family of five was to upgrade their open family room and kitchen areas into an elegant, more functional space. Hedy Shashaani of Jack Rosen
Custom Kitchens improved traffic flow by relocating appliances—including the cooktop, which now serves as a focal point in the design. She integrated the kitchen and family room by removing a knee wall and post, added a peninsula and updated the island to create designated work and gathering spaces. Off-white cabinetry offsets the dark-stained island and kitchen table, while grey-veined marble countertops and a glossy white porcelain subway-tile backsplash create a comfortable, yet sophisticated ambiance.
