A Kitchen Connected
With a better entry, a small addition, and a lounge, a great room is born.
There was a time when people wanted their kitchens to be separated from the rest of the house. The work of making meals — and the potential mess — was kept private from the area where friends and family ate and socialized. This is exactly how Abbie and Jonathan’s house had been designed. The kitchen was hidden from the dining and living rooms behind swinging doors. Though it was not small, it was poorly organized and felt cramped. The location of the peninsula made for a tiny work space, the refrigerator restricted traffic flow, and the range and ovens were breaking down. But a small addition made a big difference.
