Kitchen 69 Gallery
In a home with gorgeous cathedral ceilings, this kitchen was still cut off and cramped because it was enclosed by walls. We removed the walls and opened it up to the dining and living rooms, bringing more light into the entire space, and making the whole feel larger than it’s individual parts. The counters facing the living and dining rooms give an element of privacy to the kitchen, while providing needed serving space and lower cabinet storage. The stove and oven have a downdraft so there is no need for a vent hood above, and therefore no obstruction of the view. In order to obtain the maximum storage space in the cabinets we could install, we chose taller upper cabinets than what they had before, adding and making up for the lost storage. They now also have a pantry cabinet which is a more efficient use of space, and larger than what they had before. The warm cherry cabinetry is stained to match the rose tones of the rest of their decor, and gives the cabinets a rich furniture look that they don’t mind showing.
