I really love this kitchen design, and it is not because they have reinvested the wheel. In fact, the designer has reminded us of why these designs work so well. This is definitely a kitchen for a big family, and what gives that away is the vast array of cupboards. This is the type of kitchen that needs a lot of food storage, and storage for dishes and glasses. I love the island because it provides a space for the kids to help mom and dad cook, and the wood paneling keeps the space comfortable and easy on the eyes. What a lovely space!
