VIEW OF HUTCH from dining room
The freestanding hutch with cooktop cabinet on opposite side separates the kitchen from the dining room. Indirect lighting is directed from fixtures in cabinet valences, while task lighting uses recessed fluorescent downlights. Seen beyond is the media cabinet, separating the kitchen from the family room. The shadow colored laminate bases continue the illusion of cabinets as furniture on legs.
