In order to fit a large central island in this Pittstown, NJ kitchen, a large closet was removed and replaced by a counter depth refrigerator flanked by pantry cabinets with pull out trays.
The kitchen features distressed light maple cabinetry with a bronze glaze that matches the oil rubbed bronze Moen Brantford faucets located at the main sink and at the island’s prep sink. The bronze color can also be found in the island’s hammered copper undermount prep sink and in the veining in the Fantastic White granite counters. The main sink is a 30″ white fire clay farm sink by Barclay, which is flanked by legs on each side that also can be found on the sides of the cookbook storage bookcase at the end of the island.

On the third wall, the center base cabinet was bumped out to add visual interest and the wall cabinets above received stacked glass fronts flanking open bookshelves with wainscoting. The wainscoting pattern repeats on the rear of the island and on the wood hood above the range.
