Our Custom Wood Countertops Blog highlights the industry’s most talented and innovative designers throughout the United States and abroad. Joyce Zuelke, CKD, of Geneva Cabinet Company designed a Saxon Wood Island Countertop for this multi-functional kitchen.
About the Designer: “I am a certified kitchen designer with 20 Plus years of experience in the kitchen and bath industry. I designed the kitchen and other areas of this home for Lowell Custom Homes in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The homeowner’s fell in love with the display island wood top by Grothouse we have in our showroom, so we duplicated it on their new island,” explained Joyce.
A Tip from the Designer: “The island is awesome with an extra prep sink and the wood tops are a great choice with the Durata® finish!”
