"The original design of this kitchen was traditional, with a layout involving many angled corners and awkward spaces. The goal was to streamline the design and create a modern and more functional space. We accomplished this first by squaring off all corners, rotating the island, and enlarging the main window to add more sunlight and visual balance. In the new design, there is ample pantry space, large pots/pans drawer storage, and an appliance garage unit to hide away small items to keep the countertop clutter-free. An open display unit with built-in LED lighting allows the homeowner a place to showcase her beautiful artwork.
