built for entertaining

After relocating to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle, these homeowners wanted a casual home. And while very much a residential space, the kitchen needed to perform for entertaining. Hence the massive and separate workspaces, large service area and commercial-grade appliances.

To achieve the simplistic ranch style, Joseph Custom Homes fitted the kitchen with polished concrete floors and a corrugated steel ceiling that deftly hides a complex, high-velocity heating and cooling system to minimize cold air returns and ducting. Celery green perimeter cabinets featuring a hammered Zinc farmhouse sink paired with rich, dark-stained maple islands—all completed with quartz countertops—give the room a warm, traditional feel. Open shelving highlights the distressed-edge backsplash tile in butter and cream colors. French farmhouse pendants over the islands coordinate with the massive, blackened steel range hood. Hefty, handcrafted Mexican doors leading out of the main kitchen area lend to that rustic ranch feel. Joseph Custom Homes, josephcustomhomes.com
