We all know it’s sometimes good to have an event to spur us into action – to go from intermittent thoughts to reality. With a focus on creating plenty of room to gather at the island or prep meals, this kitchen expansion is ready to easily host large gatherings. It’s already been fully tested with a house full of wedding weekend guests soon after the project was completed!
Same Space, New Approach
By taking down a wall and absorbing the former dining room area, the new layout grants space for a commanding island to be the centerpiece to the remodeling project. Custom cabinetry is designed to handle personalized organization – a drawer to store ironed tablecloths and table runners, lift-gate cabinets for easy access to liquor bottles for mixed drinks, deep drawers for pots and pans – plus open shelving for decorative elements. In addition, a window was preserved into the layout with the addition of a bench that overlooks the wooded backyard and serves as extra seating when needed.
