Kitchen 21 Gallery
This open kitchen at the rear of the home needed an update. The configuration was not comfortable and did not take full advantage of the access and views of the backyard patio and deck. We extended the kitchen into the dining area, with the butler pantry, and tucked an additional storage pantry into the hallway leading into the foyer. The peninsula gives the family additional seating room for informal dining, with bead board wrapping the cabinet end and peninsula leg, and a serving area for more formal dining. We installed a wine rack over the refrigerator, and enclosed all of it with wood panels for a more formal look. The upper cabinetry has glass doors facing the dining area, for displaying china. The backsplash is tumbled tile with a pattern of varying shades for interest.
