The clients of the winning Viking kitchen design had a desire to combine the kitchen, breakfast nook and family room into a "great room" to accommodate both indoor and outdoor living for their family. “In this effort the kitchen was of great importance to them and their request was for something contemporary but not too modern,” said Christopher Grubb. “We incorporated Viking Appliances because of their bold design with a commercial kitchen edge,” Grubb added. “The stainless finish made a strong contemporary statement that complimented the design and with an active family, the appliances are the quality Viking is known for.”.

To anchor the "cooking" side of the room, full height cabinetry surrounds the Viking range and "frames" it while an oversized hood fan adds drama to the space. Because the Viking appliances were in view, porcelain with metallic finishes in grays were chosen as a back splash to complement the appliances and the variation of grain in the gray wood tones of the cabinetry. The island includes a microwave drawer as opposed to a built in to not interrupt the clean cabinetry.
