Description: These homeowners desired to update their kitchen and create an open, flowing space. The old kitchen was small, had inadequate work space, and there was no seating area in the kitchen. And even though everything was white, and there was a window over the sink, a French door to the patio, and a large window in the adjacent breakfast area, the room seemed dark and closed off.
After analyzing the space, the key to the redesign was removing the wall between the breakfast and dining rooms to create an open floor plan. The kitchen was relocated to this area and there was even room for an island with seating. Windows and doors were replaced with new energy-efficient ones and the exterior bricks were reused where opening locations were changed. The former dining room became a sitting area/media center with a flat screen TV, and the underused living room became the dining room. Arched openings to the dining room, foyer and den were built as elegant transitions to these rooms.
Cabinetry by Schrock in a simple Craftsman style in a pale grey painted finish on maple sets the light and airy tone. The brushed finish on the Kashmir White granite countertops adds texture and is non-reflective. Ceramic subway tile on the backsplash adds a bit of shine and gives a clean, classic look. And cooking is a pleasure with professional quality appliances by Dacor, Miele, Vent-A-Hood and Wolf.
The homeowners love the new open design that is flooded with light. They can communicate with family and friends while preparing meals. This striking transformation shows what can be achieved within the existing footprint of the house by rethinking the use of the space.
