The goal for this project was to convert a dark main level with spaces that lacked purpose and clarity into a simple and utilitarian gathering place centered around a kitchen where the family of five could proudly cook, socialize, and create meaningful memories. Expanding the existing sequestered kitchen into the underutilized dining room allowed for the addition of large south-facing kitchen windows, lovingly flooding the space with natural light. With a blend of custom and IKEA cabinets and a large, walnut-topped island, the kitchen now provides ample storage and a place for the family of five to come together each day.
