This was the total
remodel of a small 8’ X 13’ kitchen in a 46 year old 1,440 sq. ft. home.
Challenges included, the restrictive size of the kitchen, insufficient
lighting, non-existent ventilation and lack of storage space.
To overcome the size restrictions, the wall between the kitchen and
living room was opened with an archway entrance accentuated by
impressive classic columns. The original kitchen door was closed,
allowing for extended cabinets and doubling the countertop space. A
built-in was created for the microwave, which formerly sat on the
Recessed and under-cabinet lighting, as well as a larger window above
the sink corrected the lighting problem and a new stainless steel hood
vent provided more ventilation. Storage space was quadrupled with the
addition of a Lazy Susan, bull extension roll out shelves in all
cabinets, vertical tray dividers above the refrigerator and a trash
By design, the kitchen is now truly a part of the home. As a result, the
home now has a more modern and appealing look.
