Kitchen Sense and Sensibility

It’s fairly common that kitchen renovations turn into first floor makeovers. In this example, we remodeled the front foyer, kitchen, powder room, and laundry/mud room. Working within the existing footprint, the main focus was the combination of new cabinetry in the kitchen, a 9-foot ceiling height, and the accent lighting in glass-windowed cabinets near the top. This extra area not only accentuates the “wow” factor with the evening ambiance the lighting provides, but also adds more storage space. Separating the great room from the kitchen, we added our signature “Walls of Troy” framing the room and opening up the space.

More than ever, people enter their home through the garage. Oftentimes that means going through a cramped laundry room. As this project shows, the objective was to create a more welcoming entry for day-to-day life. Changing the washer and dryer to a stacking unit allowed more space to create a landing zone for household items going back and forth.
