Kitchen 63 Gallery
The old home that this kitchen and dining room are in was divided up into very small rooms. This new kitchen and dining area takes the place of two rooms.The kitchen was behind the wall that just barely protrudes from behind the double ovens now, replaced by a steel I beam support in the ceiling. There was only a small doorway between them before, and now they are one large comfortable room, with a lot more light. We designed the kitchen to take up some of the space of the former dining room, with the new large island and the bank of pantry cabinets surrounding the refrigerator and ovens. We also designed a hutch area with glass front cabinets and serving counter space, in the new dining area. We preserved the doorway to the garage behind the dividing wall. The homeowners wanted to have a small bar area, so we created one opposite the sink, with a wine refrigerator in the lower cabinets and glass front upper cabinets for the glassware. We also vented the cooktop through the floor to the outside to avoid having a vent hood.
