While this Indiana kitchen has plenty of square footage, the clients wanted to use the space more wisely. Designer Susan Brook worked with the couple and their young children to determine exactly how they'd be using their kitchen on a daily basis. Then she custom designed beautiful horizontal-grain walnut cabinetry to address a number of storage needs, and durable porcelain floor tile and stone counters to stand up to use by the kids.

The home's original kitchen had a larger corner window and one where the range and hood sit now. Brick makes up the exterior of the home, so moving the windows around took the hard work of an expert mason.
The previously plain ceiling had 6-inch recessed lights installed all over. Brook designed a plaster coffered ceiling — taking into account exactly where the cabinets would fall — and added pendants to complement additional recessed lighting.
