Great for Grandkids Kitchen

"The original kitchen-a galley kitchen-was much too small and cramped. The client wanted more room, storage and openness. The wall behind the refrigerator was where the laundry room was originally. By taking out the laundry room and relocating it, we were able to change doorways and create an open kitchen/family room effect that was more suitable for visiting with their grandchildren and gave them the work space they needed.


"We relocated the laundry room to the dining room space, eliminating the dining room in lieu of the spacious eat-in kitchen area. The so-called work triangle is very convenient for them, and a pantry down the hall provides extended storage. Though the newly-sized room is large as is, the open shelves, leaded glass doors and white finish further emphasize the large and open feel."
