A 1960 split level home to a young and growing family had a 10 x 12 kitchen that is tucked in the back corner of the house and connects through a narrow doorway to the dining room. It has been a major problem for this family and their busy day to day life style. We suggested through several consulting sessions to expand their kitchen.
With an expanded and updated kitchen we accommodated their storage needs with their contemporary design, brightness of colors and much needed breakfast seating area. Second, it offered a family room or gathering area for them.
Now, their old kitchen has been taken out partition between old kitchen and dinning room has also been taken out and the entire space has become a very large kitchen and open floor plan. We have installed hard wood floors thought out to create a seamless transition into the rest of the first floor.
The new kitchen contains professional 48in range and a large build in refrigerator, lots of cabinetry and counter space to meet client’s needs. Use of lighter shaker style custom painted cabinetry with a honed black counter tops has lightened the space tremendously as well as delivered.
We have implemented a large island with a distress black cherry cabinetry covered with sapele maghony counter top and embedded prep sink and the hanging light over the island. It has been the most prized procession of this kitchen.
Now this family gets to enjoy there time together while cooking to entertain, and kids can be hanging around.
