The client’s existing kitchen in spacious condo was functional, but the finishes were outdated and the high counter blocked the space from the dining area, making everything feel smaller and closed off. Plus, no one really utilized the seats at the peninsula. Cabinets were blocking natural light from windows, and they wanted to create a large island space that they would actually use and feel connected to the rest of the home.
The client is a cooking enthusiast, and they needed storage for cookbooks, and large pots that are used often, so we wanted to incorporate both displays into the design. 123 Remodeling’s designer mixed dark cabinets with the natural contrast of gold and wood tones, along with brighter veined countertops, and allowed for the sink, fridge, and range to be in a functional layout and be seen and connected to the dining space.
