The Family's existing kitchen was very crowded and not functional for the frequency of entertaining. By removing a wall separating the Den from the existing Kitchen, the space was able to open up and seat many more guests. The first island allows for food preparation while the second is a great space for gathering. The natural light from the front window was utilized for a quiet nook and window seat. This renovation expands the kitchen through the majority of the first level, welcoming guests from the formal entry or side mud room.
