The client wanted a unique space that could function well for day-to-day activities, as well as make entertaining easier, without crowding the space. The challenge was to lay out a center work area to accommodate meal prep, an eating area, and space for entertaining. Adjustments in the structure were needed to enlarge the kitchen space, while opening it up to the family room.
The outside wall of the kitchen was bumped out by 4 feet, and the family room wall was removed to open the two spaces, creating a better flow. This allowed access into the banquette in the center of the kitchen. The banquette is bordered on two sides by counters and cabinets, as well as stool space. Opposite the seating is a wet bar, pantry, and serving counters. Waterfall countertops complement the client’s modern take on a glamorous kitchen.
