We used native and/or sustainable materials for the interior; in the kitchen this included Doug Fir cabinets, recycled glass countertops, glass backsplash and cork flooring. LED under-cabinet lighting, LED pendants and LED recessed lights help illuminate the space when daylighting is not available. The appliances are Jen Air ENERGY STAR which are fantastic (well designed, functional, efficient and quiet), though we didn’t have another choice since the only downdraft electric range available is made by Jenn Air. The eating area was designed with a half wall and bar on one side, alongside a 72″ dining table. And, thanks to Etsy, we were able to find a local Washington glassblower who created the custom wall plates hanging on the wall. The washer and dryer were incorporated in the open space between the kitchen and living room, built-in and tucked away under the main stairs, which has proved to be quite convenient and efficient.
