What was once a dark, galley kitchen with awkward bulkheads and dated cabinetry, is now a bright & airy, family focused kitchen for this busy household. Opening up the kitchen to the adjacent dining and family rooms, provides a beautifully large space that is the heart-of-the-home - kids can do homework & play games, while parents cook, unwind with a glass of wine or read the morning newspaper (coffee in hand!). While maintaining some of the walls, retains an element of privacy in the space. Our team also suggested relocating the window above the sink (previously located where the breakfast hutch is now) to the current sink location, in order to draw in more natural light into the room and make for a better view when washing dishes. With better workflow, optimized storage, and a fresh, new palette, this kitchen has gone from drab to showstopper in a heart beat!
