PROJECT SUMMARY:

Designed for clients who frequently entertain large groups of family and friends, this kitchen blends modern and classic elements in an open space with a high level of functionality. Once dark and overcrowded, this kitchen is now a bright and organized space after removing a wall between the kitchen and family room, creating an expansive, open floor and vastly increasing the natural light and circulation of the space. Previously facing a side yard, the kitchen now leads into the beautiful backyard of the home. Pops of color, including goldenrod fabric on the island stools and a wall of glittering tile, add definition and liveliness to the space. The design's attention to careful streamlining made it possible to contain ample storage, hiding appliances within close reach for preparing meals and hosting events with efficiency and style.

The existing kitchen was bland and crowded and was cut off from the rest of the home.

Once the wall separating the dining area and kitchen was removed, the space significantly improved in functionality, light, flow and navigation.

For a client who spends so much time preparing, cooking and serving meals, the existing cooktop in a dark space was always a frustration.

A dazzling wall of tile reflects light and makes a memorable, conversation-starting design statement. The glamorous glitter is reflected in the island cooktop where the client can now more easily large meals.

The existing cabinetry was old and limited, requiring many of the clients' appliances and accessories to be stored on the countertop.

Shaker-style white cabinetry is a classic choice updated with a section of cabinets faced with opaque glass. The design's attention to careful streamlining made it possible to contain ample storage.
