This home had the typical separated kitchen and dining room, however a previous remodel had tried to open them up. The flow still wasn’t working until the separating wall was completely removed.

  • The appliances could then be arranged to assist the cook and help with the flow between the front rooms and the back sitting porch
  • The dining room wood flooring was extended into the kitchen and one window was closed in above to allow for the new range location
  • The frame-less alder cabinets maximize the storage and compliment the warmth of the wood floors
  • The granite counter-top is extended into the peninsula for additional prep area when not in use as eating space
  • The bar area is created to add entertaining space while still allowing for the original architectural phone niche on the right side
  • The back-splash is shared between the long glass tiles around the range and sink area and the mirror for the bar


The final result has created a welcoming space to cook and entertain!
