The custom-built fireplace in this contemporary kitchen from HGTV Urban Oasis 2013 lends ambiance to the entire space. The kitchen island, which also serves as a dining area, is situated to take best advantage of outdoor views, whether one is preparing a meal or chatting with friends over dinner.
Having designated areas for specific tasks, like an island prep area and cooking alcove, creates an efficient flow in this kitchen. A pair of chandeliers add elegance and anchor the space. The curved island lends itself to effortless entertaining and casual meals at the breakfast bar.
