Unique Kitchen Features:  This kitchen has an abundance of cabinets, drawers, a cooking hearth with pull out spice drawer and features two islands.

Was there a cabinet maker, builder or anyone you’d like to give credit to regarding the inspiration, design or decorating of your kitchen?   Bobby Herr, owner of Barbara Herr Kitchens in Marietta  Also, the homeowner, Sandy, did the decorating.

Bobby, please tell us about this project from a designer’s perspective:

“The goal of the project was to create a room that worked for the entire family.  Giving Sandy, an avid cook, baker and collector, an area to create in, while giving her a chance to interact with family and friends.

After receiving the footprint of the proposed area we generated six concept plans that Brad, Sandy and ourselves massaged to develop the final direction.

We wanted it to be  an area where multiple cooks could work, grandchildren could do their homework, a desk area for bill paying, and a seating area to watch TV and view the garden.

We placed the two islands, support columns, and cooking hearth along the axis line created by the cathedral ceiling.

The dining room pass thru and living room egress were added to extend the flow of light and function into the rest of the home.

The cooking hearth houses the spices, oils, and cookware with the main sink and refrigerator just being steps away.

The mixer is near the prep sink in order to throw a dirty spatula into the sink and relates to the location of the ovens and the lower pastry rolling area.

The cornice moldings wrap the entire area.

The best part of the kitchen was spending time with the homeowners and being able to taste anything Sandy had created.” ~ Bobby Herr, Barbara Herr Kitchens

The original extension of our home that includes the kitchen and family room were drawn by John Schniepp of Schniepp Design and Drafting.  The  kitchen layout, colors, cabinet stain, special features, and window selection etc. were by Bobby Herr. The general contractor was Don Fure of Don Fure Construction.
