The design goal on this project was to update the small galley kitchen in this early 1980’s home. The clients were empty nesters who love to entertain, but didn’t have the proper space or equipment to do so. The challenge of this project was to build in storage space and functionality to the kitchen and add a dedicated dining space where there previously was none; without adding to the existing footprint of the kitchen.
- The first step was to redesign the basic layout of the kitchen by removing the existing sink wall. The removal allowed the room to be opened up for a new dining addition.
- The existing eat-in kitchen area was then transformed into a customized baking center through the use of custom cabinetry; which included new storage for dishes, small appliances and bakeware.
- Two built in appliance garages were installed to house the microwave and other small appliances, while new roll-out shelving provided easy access to dishware.
- Finally, a closet that was previously underutilized was rebuilt into a practical office center.
In the newly constructed dining area, a custom designed buffet was installed along the back wall, delivering plenty of storage and service area for entertaining without encroaching on the space.
The result of this project is truly a gorgeous, functionally organized kitchen and dining area that utilizes every nook and cranny for practical storage space. The clients were extremely pleased.
