This thoughtful kitchen remodel added transitional design with the classic grain of hickory cabinets. Hickory covered beams carry the warmth throughout the room and seamlessly incorporate it into the existing home design. A hutch was added as a custom designed furniture piece. Custom built steel posts were used in place of wood to maximize available space and make room for a coffee & beverage counter. The posts were painted red in honor of the owner's Ducati motorcycle.
