This was a complete makeover.
We took out a bar that faced into the adjacent family room. It had two pass-throughs, one to the pool outside, and the other was this tiny opening to the kitchen. It was what we call “dead space” or space that is non-functional. Square footage is expensive these days, so every bit of it needs to have value.
We closed the walls, added a door on the kitchen side, and made a walk-in pantry. The newly added island was designed for friends and family and included an under-counter beverage center, which keeps everyone free and clear of the cook’s workspace. We also hid USB ports, so charging phones and working from laptops is easy and charging convenient
This homeowner now has a kitchen that will never go out of date again.
