Before and After:- Kitchen goes bright!

Vani Sayeed Studios
8 September, 2015

The space was compact, with pale yellow walls, a small dining area by the window, and an l-shaped counter with essential appliances and dated cabinetry. We removed a wall and an under-staircase pantry to open the kitchen and make space for a dining area at the opposite end of the room. They designed around the brick, making it a central feature while allowing for additional storage. The light granite counters compliment the white Shaker-style cabinets, which span to ceiling height. Aqua glass tiles add texture and reflect light. The room also features an additional counter with custom shelving designed for a bar and breakfast station. Appliances have new homes, including the fridge, which is built into the wall in the place of the former dining area.

    It's very nice. It really opened up and brightened the space. I love the slashes of turquoise.

    I love that you kept the fireplace insert! When I saw it, I thought of many things and hoped it wouldn't be removed...

    Darlene, thanks for your kind words. When I was first invited to the project my clients thought that it was the "elephant" in the room and did not know what to do with it (its original to house and could not be removed). My reaction was quite the opposite I wanted to feature it center stage - it is a cool architectural detail. And so we integrated it into the lower cabinetry and let it be a central feature.
