They wanted a modern, functional kitchen for themselves and their two daughters, and they wanted it to meld aesthetically with the time period of the home. They cook quite a bit so having well organized work centers and storage was vital. They also wanted plenty of outlets, lighting, and a phone-charging station. To create some of the new spaces we used an existing void between the kitchen and formal dining area that had once been either a chimney or utility corridor. We somewhat had to design as we went as we had an idea of what was possible, however, firm dimensions didn’t reveal themselves until after demolition. This, combined with the need to locate drawers and appliances in proximity to these pullouts, made this phase of the project a bit tricky.
