This kitchen renovation created a new open concept design by reconfiguring a Dining Room into the Kitchen space. The new, larger kitchen permitted the addition of a much needed ground floor Powder Room.
Our clients’ love of travel and cooking required a kitchen to celebrate life adventures with family and friends. There is a very functional work triangle that is enhanced by the island ‘Chefs Table’. This island has unique characteristics in its transparency at the lower section. This helps in making the wide room feel less cramped. A cozy bistro table is tucked into the island and perfectly centered to the existing living room opening.
Traditional recessed panel cabinets are done in classic white and Metropolis grey. The grey, being a great compliment to the warmth of the existing birch floor.
The peninsula separating the dining area features raised cabinets on the dining side that act as a visual barrier of the cooking side. Above are display shelves to hold the beautiful bowls collected on family travels.
Family and Friends First Review
Design First designed a fabulous new kitchen for our 1950s house and acted as project manager through the renovation. The design introduced a new powder room and modernized kitchen where an old small kitchen and dining room used to be. The design seemlessly transitions to an existing family room addition which was not well used or connected before. Friedemann’s design has transformed our home and how we use it. By seeing the possibilities of the current footprint of the house, Friedemann talked us out of an addition and incorporated our wishlist within the current structure of the house.
