This project took a small and cramped one room kitchen and incorporated it into an open floor plan. After taking out a wall and installing a new header beam we closed up existing windows and doors and installed a 10’ window that maximized the light and view. After new paint and lighting throughout, this first floor became a ‘great room’ including a new chef’s kitchen. A sizeable island hosts a prep sink, a pop-up outlet, and a high-end stove top and hood. Both clients cook extensively and have large gatherings frequently for family and friends. The new space more than exceeded their expectations.
