Few things give me as much joy as re-working a kitchen layout. It’s weird, I know, but I get this natural high for tearing rooms apart and puzzle-piecing them back together. I like improving function and flow. I delight in making a dark space seem brighter. Think your space is too small? Maybe my layout will make it seem bigger.
Our Bala Cynwyd clients needed all of this with a dose of pretty on top. They called us in hoping for a little kitchen magic. Their kitchen was starting to go (cabinet doors were falling apart left and right,) the layout wasn’t working for them and the look wasn’t to my clients’ taste. We lucked out and were able to raise a window allowing for base cabinets to run underneath of it. This was a total game changer as a previously empty wall is now a work horse in the kitchen. The tight U kitchen was transformed into a Double L with much better flow between work areas. No idea what that means? Let’s have the floor plans and pictures do the talking.
Someone packed a lot of appliances and cabinets into previous kitchen design.
I have to hand it to them, the U shape was creative. Plus the long lower counter sat up to 6.
But the space felt so crowded,. There wasn’t good prep space
Also the family room felt really cut off from the kitchen.
