The homeowner’s primary goal was to be able to host large dinner parties without overwhelming the space. However, it was important that the space not feel like a commercial kitchen (even though it has three dishwashers!) in order to blend with the Mid-century Modern style of the home. We incorporated an underutilized adjacent area in order to increase the size of the kitchen by 150% to create designated space for everything, including the client’s vast collection of china and serving pieces. The new floor plan feels as though it was original to the house. Cabinetry and countertops also blend seamlessly with the rest of the home. Accents, such as the backsplash and island light fixture, add feminine elements and a touch of glamour.
