This kitchen’s layout was awkward, dark, and had a wall that isolated the cook. See how it was transformed into a light and modern space. First, the dividing wall was taken down, and the sink and refrigerator were relocated to create a better layout.
With the sink in the new peninsula, the cook now has plenty of room for prep. And a clear line of sight into other rooms. Ceiling-height cabinets maximize storage, and a pull- out pantry keeps cooking essentials close to the range.
A sleek glass tile back splash and honed black granite countertop set off the pale wood tones of the modern cabinetry. The window remained in its original spot. But the sink was relocated, creating room for a hidden but easily accessed microwave.
With these smart updates, this kitchen delivers a big dose of modern style and function.
