CHARACTER KITCHEN

“Short on character”, lacking “good workflow”, and feeling isolated from the family room despite two entries, this new kitchen design also had to “wrap around” existing pipes and wiring in a wall that separated the two rooms. By closing one entry, widening the other, and placing the island on a diagonal, occupants of both rooms now come together. Light-colored cabinetry and countertops help the space appear larger. The addition of a stainless steel and black range hood, microwave, and hardware, integrate existing appliances with a contemporary space, all the while keeping it to budget.
