Family entertaining is the focus in this traditional farmhouse situated on a lake. However, the existing kitchen layout was not conducive to hosting, entertaining and sharing. It was plagued with a tiny island, lots of unused seating and inefficient cabinet storage.
We were able to capture hollow space from the walls and living room in order to open up a cramped corner and create a more linear layout. When elongating the sink area, it allowed for a spacious center in which we incorporated a new long and wide island.
We also relocated the bar height kitchen sitting area and incorporated it on the living room side. Due to the existing cooktop area remaining unchanged we needed to match the existing finishes exactly. We were able to do so by tracking down the original backsplash tile and obtaining a custom order.
Now the family is able to share lots of love, hearty laughs, and good food around the home's focal point.
