By combining a cramped dinette space with the small kitchen footprint, a new bright and spacious kitchen with plenty of work surfaces for multiple cooks was created.
The chief goal was to create a kitchen space that would accommodate a busy family and allow for multiple cooks. Adding a secondary prep sink located close to the range made this possible.

The original u-shape kitchen with soffits and peninsula wall cabinets felt dark and cramped despite the large amount of windows. By installing new shorter windows in the dinette space, we were able to extend the counter into that area. This created a generous kitchen with lots of work zones and improved flow for multiple cooks, and family and guests wanting to hang out in the new space. By eliminating the soffits and peninsula cabinets, light from the window in the former dinette space flows into the kitchen. Taller wall cabinets with trim to the ceiling added much needed storage. The clean lines of the cabinets and open shelves pay homage to the Midcentury Modern aesthetic of the home. Soft grey subway tile play off the solid surface countertops. The maple butcher block top on the island adds warmth and compliments the floating wood shelves on each end of the cabinet run.
