The original kitchen was brown and overpowered by wood tones on both the floor and the cabinetry. The cooking zone was tight and didn’t leave space for multiple people and the diagonal island generated a nonfunctional workspace. The client didn’t want to remove any walls and we kept the window in its same place. By relocating the fridge and pushing it on the other side of the doorway, a bigger cooking area was designed, and more countertop space was produced for prepping. We transitioned the island by making it parallel to the main sink and created the perfect chopping zone by adding a thick walnut butcher block. This butcher block added back some warm tones. We chose off white cabinetry paired with charcoal to give this space a brighter feel. The cabinetry featured is full custom beaded inset, which allows for a high-end look.
