This 1970’s kitchen was closed off to the rest of the home. The cook wanted to entertain and feel involved with the activities of entertaining.

  • By removing the corner of the room, the space was opened to the formal dining room
  • Another wall was removed to open the space to the casual dining area near the kitchen
  • A darker stained floating island blended with the wood beam and redwood flat ceiling
  • The biggest challenge was the lighting. Recessed cans could not be used, so cable lighting was added with spots and pendants
  • Frameless cherry cabinetry brought lots of natural color into the space
  • Bright neon pendants are a key focal point in the space
  • Modern appliances bright flare to the room

The unique ceiling architecture and modern cabinetry and fixtures are to now be enjoyed by all who visit.
