Remodeled Kitchen and Living Room

Project elements/challenges:

  • U-shaped kitchen trapped the cook there; there was only one way in or out
  • Elevated bar created barrier between kitchen and family room, and the bar position was not good for actual bar seating and interacting with the cook
  • Appliance arrangement was inconvenient for cooking efficiency
  • The kitchen and family room were open to each other, but there was no solid design connection between the two areas
  • The fireplace style was oversized and outdated


  • Eliminated “U” shape and include an island in the new design that allows additional access in and out of the kitchen
  • Eliminated bar “barrier” and replaced it with a counter height island that includes convenient and accessible bar seating to enhance interaction with cook
  • Flipped the position of the refrigerator and the oven for greater cooking efficiency
  • Replaced the closet pantry with pantry cabinets with rollout shelves for better, more convenient storage
  • Reduced fireplace footprint and completely redesigned the fireplace and shelving area to be more relatable to the kitchen, and to create greater cohesion in the overall design
