What started off with a desire to do a basic kitchen update changed course for a very happy ending. This family was tired of the pinch points in traffic flow, the 1980s kitchen, and being closed off from guests. Improving the floor plan so it’s open to easily transition from family pizza-making sessions to entertaining large groups of friends makes this main level ready for lots of activity.
Entertaining Now is "Amazing"
Removing the wall between the living room and kitchen, realigning the kitchen orientation, and adding an island changes everything – in such a wonderful way. Re-configuring the kitchen to include an island and enough cabinets for storage was a critical aspect of the design phase. The homeowners love having the island with seating for breakfast before school as well as for the buffet line for holiday celebrations. With the ends of the kitchen being open to the living and dining room, the space feels light and open. The quartz and granite countertops, custom cabinetry, pendant lights and range hood elevate the kitchen experience. Gorgeous luxury vinyl flooring ties the main level together. Entertaining friends is “amazing” according to the homeowners. “Everyone wants to come to our place now!”
