Architectural Island

Functional Kitchen Remodel

This kitchen was once closed off from the rest of the house with a disjointed layout that didn’t function well for the homeowners. Removing a wall and reconfiguring cabinetry created an open floor plan with tons of space and natural light. The centerpiece is the custom-designed island with two round, butcher block-topped cabinets flanking a curved granite bar. The creamy white cabinets contrast with the rich, wood tomes of the perimeter cabinetry. The large island offers plenty of prep space. In the dining area, a built-in desk allows several family members to be in the space at once cooking, working or eating.
