Eco Kitchen Design

A reclaimed wood island at two heights is multifunctional.

Loads of glass and an open floor plan means this kitchen gets plenty of natural light, so less power is needed. A special window coating keeps heat in during the winter and out in the summer. The sleek, environmentally friendly kitchen island is made from reclaimed Douglas fir.
