Kitchen Design for Your Whole Home Remodel: Is Your Kitchen in the Right Place?
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, kitchens are one of the most used spaces in our homes. If you’ve been considering a kitchen remodel, you’re probably dreaming about how your kitchen could be more expansive, welcoming and functional. Our professional designers listen closely to your needs and desires for your space and then evaluate your home along with our team of architects. Sometimes they decide that the best solution to achieve the kitchen of your dreams is moving where it is in the floor plan. Here are some examples of how moving your kitchen can transform your whole home remodel in ways you may not have imagined:
Take Advantage of Views
This home has amazing views but the original kitchen was not taking advantage of the surroundings. The architectural design decision was made to relocate the kitchen to maximize appreciation of the incredible vista. Natural light was dramatically increased and the kitchen was more gracefully connected to the rest of the living space, defining it as a central gathering place.
Maximizing Unused Space
Areas of your home you don’t spend much time in can be changed to a new purpose for a more appealing and functional layout. The kitchen was moved to the front of this home to replace a little used formal living space. This allowed for an expansive, stylish solution in a newly integrated open living space.
New Orientation and Scale
Sometimes a kitchen can be dramatically transformed by borrowing space from another room and changing the orientation of the kitchen to connect more with the home’s natural surroundings. That was the strategy used in this beach condo kitchen, which is now three times larger than the original.
When you work with a unified team of architects, designers, and construction professionals, you collaborate with professionals who have years of experience in developing innovative approaches to the design of your home. On Turkey Day and every day, it’s so comforting to have a functional, beautiful, and inviting kitchen in your whole home remodel!
