Dreary Kitchen Gets Sunny Makeover AFTER Opening up walls between the kitchen, living room and solarium gave the space breathing room and flooded it with natural light. Reconfiguring the footprint of the kitchen enabled the design team to create distinct zones for prep, cooking, cleanup and entertaining. The new banquette seating in the solarium provides a space for guests to relax and chat without getting in the way of food prep and cooking activities. Not all of the features of the redesigned kitchen were new, however – the design team utilized the existing exposed brick wall and pantry. A combination of white and slate cabinetry, along with wood cabinet hardware, create a bright, clean feel, while the wood flooring and weathered-look copper pendants warm up the space. Specialized storage – including shelving for the homeowners' collection of cookbooks and tea storage integrated into the pantry – ensures the new kitchen is perfectly tailored to the homeowners' needs.

Additionally, the range needed improved ventilation and the entire space required asbestos abatement. Photo: Jay Groccia, OnSite Studios 82 Kitchen & Bath Design News • March 2019 TRANSFORMATIONS
