Wainscoting Walls

To respect the character of the existing dining room, the designer kept the traditional wainscoting. Three sides of the kitchen island, as seen from the dining room, are detailed to match the painted wood paneling used in the adjacent dining space. The other side is finished in the same natural material as the kitchen cabinets, creating a clear cohesive connection between the rooms. The flooring is mixed-grain American white oak.
