We wanted an open feel so we made the dining area and the kitchen all flow to the great room. I love the layout. It was one of the best changes we made to the house plans. It is perfect.

Adam was worried we wouldn't have enough cabinet space. It does look we have a small amount of cabinets and...I have a lot of dishes....
|Fiesta Fiesta!! (some of them are in the dishwasher too...)|
We have almost all of our dishes, pots & pans, and small appliances unpacked and tucked away in the cabinets and we still have a few open spots. I was surprised too. Even the pantry has one whole shelf with nothing in it...and we are stocked up on groceries.
And check out the details! A close up of the glaze, and our fabulous hardware.

Here is a better photo of the color & detail of the island. We wanted the mixed color look of the dark and white and then we opted to go with the glaze on both colors to bring it together.
