Kitchen and Family Room Transformation

In This renovation, our clients came to us with the challenge of opening up their kitchen to the living room. There were restrictions with the structure of the home which limited the amount in which could be opened up. We found that our clients main concern was the chef would be working in the kitchen while the rest of their guests are in the living room. William Standen was on the case to overcome these challenges and provide a suitable space that hit all the clients needs and wants.

After completing a renovation assessment with our crew we determined that we were able to provide enough of an opening which still safely supported the roof of the home at a cost-effective solution.

Next, was the design of the kitchen. The kitchen was rearranged in a more functional composition. The purpose is that the chef can take items from the fridge to the sink do all their washing, chopping, and prepping then swiftly move everything to the range for cooking.

We removed an exterior door which is now the new location of the range to the right of the range is an area for paperwork so the client has a dedicated space to do all of their office tasks for the day. To help make the space feel larger we used white cabinetry and a light marble-like backsplash with a hexagon shape for visual interest.

The new kitchen has more flow and ability for two people to work in the kitchen at once while being open to the living room allowing someone working at the range and the sink to be able to communicate with guests in the living space.
