As PART OF an extensive remodel and roof-raising of this Nebraska family's original homestead, Cindy Fahrenbruch, CKD, of Artistic Cabinetry ensured the new kitchen was worthy of the revamped retreat. 

Her first move: relocating the kitchen to the center of the space to maximize views of the outdoor patio and yard and make it accessible to the family room and glassed-in porch. This spot also had a wonderful vaulted ceiling­beautiful yet challenging for lighting. After brainstorming with Ken Anderson, CKD, owner of Task Lighting, Fahrenbruch added a suspended soffit over the 42-inch island that mirrored its shape as well as suspended lit ledges that border the entire room. The soffit designed for above the island provided lighting for the sink and created coziness to balance the vaulted ceiling. Task Lighting's angled LED Qseries fixtures light the unique ledges designed around the room and create intimacy and spectacular aesthetics amid the soaring ceiling. The use ofTask Lighting's angled power strips also kept the beautiful tile backsplash free of outlets and switches. 

Other incredible features include a baking center with pocket doors for the mixer and toaster, a hidden walk- in pantry, and a walk-through office behind the range hood wall that allows the owners to view the arrival of anyone visiting their American retreat!

I want you to know that very few women can pass my test for knowledge in the trade, but Artistic Cabinetry is one of them. Their vision is exceptional. Being able to see things as we speak on the phone to each other is a gift very few women and men have.
