The design concept for this renovation project was based on the unique wishes of the homeowners, who love to cook and dine at home. The client wanted their new kitchen to emulate the look and feel of a traditional kitchen in Tuscany, Italy.

A. Large, open kitchen/breakfast nook/family room area for entertaining and family interaction

B. The focal point of the kitchen is the wood-burning pizza oven, angled in the corner of the space, with its stone surround.

C. The mudroom, with ample storage space and wood lockers, offers a convenient area to store coats, shoes, back packs, and school supplies without cluttering the kitchen.

D. The breakfast nook opens up to a beautiful outdoor courtyard, allowing the homeowners to extend their Tuscan kitchen experience outside for outdoor dining and entertaining.

E. The large walk-in pantry offers additional storage space for food and bulky items
