Some pretty dramatic changes to a kitchen renovation in South Park. The outdated kitchen had too many doorways and one extra large window that limited the cabinetry options in the previous design. Nest Designs LLC created a new floor plan that eliminated two doorways and one window. Removing those items allowed for a wall of cabinetry and a large amount of surface area on the counter-tops. The area to the left of the stove used to be a doorway that led to the outside of the house while the area to the right of the stove use to be a window.
Repositioning the island and the stove helped create better flow in the kitchen. This historic home had 9′ ceilings and running the cabinetry the height of the ceiling added much needed storage, along with adding a lot of visual appeal. Notice the support beams above the opening that lead into the mudroom and additional pantry (not pictured). By opening up the doorway that had a very small passageway, we were able to make those two spaces more unified. It also allowed for more natural light to flood into the kitchen.
