The owners sought an update to their kitchen, living room, and dining room hoping for a better layout to the existing small kitchen and better connection between the living spaces. The kitchen and family room had been separated by a wall, leaving the family room feeling detached, dark. and separated from the rest of the home. The living room, at the opposite side of the kitchen, consisted of large picture frame windows along one full wall, splaying light to the space. This light, along with the existing vaulted ceilings, wanted to be celebrated within the areas of the remodel. The wall separating the kitchen and family room was replaced with a beam; the small U-shaped kitchen was remodeled to include two wall units and an island greatly, increasing the cabinet and countertop square footage, usability and flow.
