A Day in the Life…
Kitchens can be tricky. Especially ones that have been remodeled….then remodeled again… and needing to be remodeled. A lot of times, even in new construction, there seems to be odd spaces “left over” that turn into wasted space or additional dining. Many times in the construction process, the final use is not considered during the initial design and build, which leaves us with the task of finding out what to do with the seemingly “odd” leftover space. We were at a consultation earlier this week where the client had a lot of room in the kitchen, but there was that “awkward” space in the back corner. Previously it had been used as a desk/office area, but this area is no longer needed for this use. You could just put a small round table in the corner with 4 chairs and call it a day, but then you would have two “dining” spaces within 10 feet of each other….Not necessary. So, why not move the dining into the kitchen by utilizing the island (everyone wants them together now anyways!), carry the cabinets to the corner to fill the space(who doesn’t need extra storage!) and turn your “old” dining room into a sitting area for entertaining!
Done deal! Check out picture that was the result…look at that storage! (The original pantries were on either end of just the section of cabinets to the left, and the sets of cabinets to the right were non-existent.)
