The starting point for this project was an aesthetically dated kitchen that was missing some key functionality and had become a traffic crossroads for people moving from one part of the house to another.
Our design eliminated one of three internal doorways to create a kitchen that is less pass-through and more destination. This gave the room more wall space and enabled us to move the sink to the perimeter, freeing up space for an island that is now a great workspace for the family that loves to cook together.
We simplified and enhanced the important connection to the family room with an elegant archway and centered the large kitchen island to give aesthetic symmetry and anchor the room.
Finding room for a desired banquette eating nook posed another design conundrum. The solution was to add a cozy corner bench to an underutilized niche in the nearby family room, creating a new favorite coffee and snack destination.
