This kitchen and sitting area required the removal of a bearing wall to open the space from a galley kitchen to one more suited to the owner’s desire for a place to entertain family and friends.  Traditional, inset Shaker style doors are complimented by a contemporary color choice that brings a dash of the unexpected to this design.  The suspended, lighted cabinet above the island creates the look of a lantern when illuminated in the evening and provides ambient accent lighting while enjoying a wood burning fire in the adjacent lounge area.

This contemporary kitchen is accented with a bold blue island against a symmetrical and clean white backdrop of cabinets and herringbone tile backsplash.  The adjacent living and dining rooms feature tall storage and accent cabinets flanking a gas fireplace and a refinished maple floor.  New lighting zones on separate switching helps to create distinctions of space within this large and unified area.

 The owners were interested in re-using their cabinets from an earlier renovation while adding more space and an eat-in option.  We added square footage by enclosing an existing front porch and some creative cabinet layout gave us the ability to reuse the cabinets- reducing both the cost and environmental footprint of the project.  New oak floors reintegrated the spaces.  The addition of some custom case work with obscured glass created distinction between the dining and living rooms while maintaining flow and light.
