Allow plenty of floor and work space if there are multiple cooks working simultaneously. Two islands and two sinks create work zones where Linda and her daughters can share cooking chores.
Linda loves her glass-front Sub-Zero refrigerator, even though she needs to keep contents tidy. After washing foods, she stores them in pretty and practical glass containers.
Choose cabinets, ceiling heights, and window styles in keeping with the architecture of your house. This 1920s Georgian-style home has high ceilings, leaded windows, and traditional details.
