This kitchen blends the natural elements of a mid-century home with the simple, clean lines of a contemporary farmhouse kitchen. The owner wanted a higher functioning kitchen for cooking and entertaining family and friends. The previous kitchen was a dark cramped u-shaped affair with limited counter and storage space. It also was disconnected from the other entertaining spaces and hid some of the mid-century architectural features of the home, including a stone feature wall in the center of the home and tongue-and-groove vaulted ceiling. This kitchen gives the owner more counter and storage space, an island with seating, a second prep sink, a beverage bar for entertaining, and more natural light. The available square footage for the design was limited, so the cabinets for the island and beverage bar were altered to depths that allow for good circulation but still give adequate counter and storage space. A wall between the kitchen and dining/living rooms was opened to allow light in from the exterior windows in the living room, and to create a beverage bar with a sink and under counter refrigeration. The owner now has a light and bright space to feature her culinary skills and comfortably entertain her guests. This beautiful kitchen packs a lot of features into a small space.
