Now there's room for two cooks ... and a four-legged helper.
Servais also designed a large, efficient central island to serve as the kitchen's major food-preparation and storgae area. Inset in its top is a big marble slab that's a useful work surface, especially for pastry or candy making. It's surrounded by hand-painted tiles.
Just under the top along one side of the island, four cutting boards slide out; together, they can increase work space by almost half. Below the boards, an oversize drawer stores four and sugar in plexiglass bins; another holds large trays and pot tops between plywood diviers. On the other side of the island, a stool slips under a roomy utensil drawer; below two adjacent drawers is a carpeted per bed.
Servais replaced the old linoleum on the kitchen floor with gray-green decomposed granite tile that complements that dark hardwood floor of the breakfast area.
