This traditional kitchen replaced an older 1960s version that occupied the same footprint width but doubled the length to create a much friendlier environment for this family of four. There were some logistical challenges in being able to externally exhaust the cooktop, given that it was located on an interior wall, but engineered materials and creative design allowed for the solution. The adjacent great room became a more integral part of the plan by doubling as additional dining space.
Custom cabinetry with inset doors, stone countertops and new appliances were what the clients desired. This classic white-on-white design is in stark contrast to the old kitchen. Some thought was given to capturing additional adjacent space to expand the footprint, but utilizing the galley style that this design offered ended up being the smart choice.
