This 30-year old townhouse was in need of an entire remodel in order to give it the elegant style the client was looking for. The work began with the kitchen, to open up the completely closed in walls, and join the kitchen, the entry space, and the dining room into one fluid space. The owner’s enjoy cooking and entertaining and wanted a space that would give them an open and inviting layout they could work in; complete with updated fixtures and modern equipment. Thermador cooking appliances, KitchenAid cold storage, and a dynamic chimney hood give the kitchen a professional upgrade.
As open as the floor plan was designed, the homeowner’s didn’t want their guests to see the new cooking area; they wanted their attention focused on the beautiful new granite and the rich, elegant finishes. Even though the footprint was quite compact, the challenge of creating two distinct area’s to the kitchen was solved.
The new peninsula with its dynamic shape and distinctive curved cabinet at the end, achieve the drama the client’s want with additional storage tucked inside. More storage was also achieved with the beautiful custom sideboard; large enough to hold linens and entertaining equipment, but still elegant enough for an art display.
The finished remodel is a beautiful sight from the first step through the front door, and the homeowner’s are enjoying cooking and entertaining in their award-winning kitchen!
