The homeowners of this Roseville 2-story had a very small kitchen footprint with big ideas. For starters they wanted a more open feel to their kitchen and at the same time they wanted an island. The existing “U” shaped kitchen had to go. But, the challenge was how to fit in an island and a dining room table in the same footprint?
The solution? Eliminate the “U” and go to a floor to ceiling galley layout and create a narrow island that extends into the space where the casual dining table used to be and craft a custom dining table for two that straddled the kitchen and living rooms. We also painted the Kitchen and Sunken Dining Room in Suntan Bronze color in satin finish.
To keep the eclectic style intact we replaced the current light fixtures with Quoizel Kyle 4-Light Imperial Bronze & over dining table with Four Light Distressed Amber Etched Glass Oil Rubbed Bronze Candle Chandelier. We were able to keep the budget in line by opting for a different grade of granite and a luxury vinyl tile floor.

The custom dining table was made of butcher block and stained by Murphy Bros. Paint and Fine Finishes experts to match the island. With the added feature of adjustable legs, the table could be easily lowered or raised to accommodate any changes in the flooring in either room.
