The blue and gray veining of the Scottish Meadow granite lightens the space, while at the same time, complements the dark tones of the cabinetry. “The guys at Marble & Granite Works were amazing the way they were able to match up the veining from the countertop to the backsplash,” David says. “That one detail creates such a smooth transition and flow.” The Columbus, Ohio-based fabricator also routed a recessed drainboard into the granite countertop, next to the sink. David and Iris saw the application when they toured the showroom. “I didn’t want an ugly plastic drainboard sitting on the countertop,” Iris says. “This has been a wonderful solution.” The flooring was equally important to David and Iris. Morgan suggested cork after the couple said they wanted a material other than wood or tile. “If you spend as much time in the kitchen as they do, then you want a material that is kind to your feet,” Morgan says. “This is the same cork that is on the floors of the Dayton Art Institute. If it can handle that many visitors it can handle this kitchen.”

The 12x24-inch tiles are easy to clean, can be removed and replaced if necessary and bring out the light color of the prep island’s butcher block top. Life in the kitchen has been much easier for David and Iris since the renovation. You’ll often find David cooking up something new in the rotisserie and Iris coming up with a new appetizer. “We’ve always enjoyed cooking, now we love it even more,” Iris says. “I walk into the kitchen every morning and I am still shocked. It’s a completely different world!”
