Creating a formal yet friendly custom kitchen is no easy feat, the goal in this project was to do just that and make it family friendly as well. I always encourage homeowners to create a wish list which outlines their ultimate goals for their dream kitchen. What is important to you? The functionality, the look? The style? The cost?
