Time spent in the heart of your home is most enjoyable when your kitchen itself is working WITH you, as a composed, purposeful dance within your space.

We’re excited to join you on the journey to compose the best Kitchen design, layout & appliances to provide efficient movement in time with the space. Each of us has their own dance…

Kitchen design for people who ACTUALLY cook can look a bit different. Space, layout and appliance/finish selections are critically important to maintaining a rhythm and for safety and efficiency. Taking cues from well-planned Commercial Kitchens can help us understand our beloved spaces at Home all the better.
