wanted a contrast, not wanting her kitchen
to be all white, and chose a darker island
with the same quartz countertops. With a
ton of storage underneath, there are also electrical outlets on either side for appliances.
"Counter space was where we suffered in
previous apartments, but everything is builtin here," she says. "We have so much counter
space and can utilize every piece of it. It's so
much easier to cook now."
The island's storage hides the waffle maker,
blender and a few other pieces quite nicely.
There is so much storage, in fact, she hasn't
filled it up yet.
"Now I have an excuse to go buy more
stuff," she says, laughing. "I have so much cabinet space, I don't know what to do with it!"
While her husband picked out most of the
appliances and light fixtures, Acharya herself
worked closely with builders on the custom
high ceiling. She became inspired by Pinterest, wanting a similar style for her own
home. The kitchen and family room are the

only space in the house with the contrasting
ceiling. Acharya wanted the appearance of a
large space with the open floor plan.
Soft-close drawers and cabinets mean little
ones can't slam doors (or fingers), while the
built-in coffee maker is a dream-come-true
for her husband, as he's often on call. The
fact that it saves space is a huge plus. In addition to stainless steel appliances, the gas
range stove can double as a grill. On the wall
above it is a pot filler, which makes cooking convenient when Acharya can stay on
one side of the kitchen. The backsplash, a
limestone bevel, is perhaps the most custom
part of the kitchen. It added dimension and
changed the look of the kitchen completely
once added.
With two small girls, their open kitchen
allows space to run around, as well as keep
an eye on them when they're sitting in the
accompanying family room. Natural light
floods the room through several large windows, keeping the room bright.
