Designer: Jill Jarrett
This busy family wanted a space to congregate and entertain but the home’s small, dark kitchen with outdated false brick and old cabinetry just didn’t work. The room lacked natural light and the dining room and kitchen did not flow as a doorway between the rooms had been sealed in a previous renovation. We removed a wall between the kitchen and study inviting light into the space and added a doorway into the dining room allowing the seating areas to be interactive. This change afforded the addition of a large island and a walnut hutch featuring a marble top with elegant, octagonal doors and mirrored-glass inserts bringing ‘Hollywood Glamour’ to the space. Stainless appliances and high-polished pendants contribute to the glitz and the dramatic Bombay hood serves as the room’s focal point. Smart use of space and valuable hours of client-designer interaction assured a beautiful and functional kitchen.
