About this Project
The transformation of this 2400 sq.ft. waterfront townhome all started with a broken dishwasher. After chatting with the homeowners, it was clear that the kitchen needed the most improvement to accompany their love for entertaining.
Here are some details on how we transformed this space.
- – The original kitchen had a U-Shaped Floorplan with a kitchen table. We opened the space by changing the layout from peninsula to an island and extending the perimeter.
- – We relocated almost all the major workstations which now include: individual freestanding fridge & freezer, new primary sink on the island, prep sink where the primary sink used to be.
- – We incorporated a pass through between the kitchen and dining room which helped to open the space. By opting for a flush mount ceiling hood fan there were no visual obstacles between the two rooms.
- – This space is loaded with functional storage using drawers, an appliance garage & pull-out pantry mechanism.
This space now has the efficiency of a commercial kitchen with the warmth of home!
Working with the existing unit in place, the new design masks its asymmetry to the wall by incorporating asymmetrical shelves on either side of the fireplace. There are now many spaces for the clients to display their collection of travel treasures, brining warmth and personality to this cozy room.
The finishes used in this area compliment the kitchen yet make it feel like its own space.
in this space we wanted to create impact & drama. The beautiful subway tile (Ames Tile & Stone) is where it all started, the rest of the details came together to compliment the tile feature.
The bathroom was a simple update of fixtures while increasing storage with medicine cabinets and drawers on the vanity. Subway tiles with dark grout, a dark marble-like floor tile and black plumbing fixtures make for a timeless look.
