Wood-clad walls, a distinctive range hood, a cherry-trimmed island, and the absence of upper cabinets give the space a pretty, rather than a utilitarian, feel.
The 3-by-7-foot island sometimes doubles as design work space for homeowner Ann Constantine (pictured).
An arched window salvaged from a church, square-cut pine floors, and built-in bookshelves make the adjoining sitting room welcoming.
Cabinets by Cabico go straight to the floor and have inset Shaker-style doors and a no-fuss aesthetic.
Energy-efficient windows let in plenty of light; countertops are made of Corian that looks a lot like stone.
