Kitchen – 2011
Project LocationLancaster, PA
The client’s goal was to update the kitchen while eliminating the mish-mash of freestanding pieces she added over the years to try to provide enough storage and work space. We cut a pass-through in the wall between the kitchen and dining room not only for convenience between the prep and dining areas but to eliminate the closed-in feel of the kitchen. Shallow cabinets along the walls by the entrances to the family room and basement steps add much needed built-in storage and counter space while not impeding the flow of traffic. We shifted the range down slightly to eliminate the cramped feeling of cooking right beside the wall while adding convenient resting spots for cookware on each side of the range. Quartz counters and the ceramic tile backsplash and floor add a cohesive look to the semi-custom cabinets. We installed under cabinet lighting to provide abundant light for work areas the homeowner now thoroughly enjoys using.
