A Kitchen is Transformed From Frog to Prince



This kitchen is the centerpiece of an addition that, while not adding significant square footage to the home, dramatically enhances its appeal. The plan is more open and unified, and the home feels appreciably larger. The outside deck at the back of the house is now slightly smaller, but we’ve created a family room, expanded kitchen and dining area. The project is still in progress but the kitchen is finished and the before photos give you an idea of the change. The window in the before shot is located where the cook top is now.

We removed the wall with the double oven and fridge in the before picture and created the counter top wing with double glass dark wood cabinetry, which serves both the kitchen and dining area to the left. The kitchen scheme started with the choice of granite, which determined the colors and textures of the wood floors and cabinets, cook top with oven underneath, and ceramic tiles with the center square arrangement. The center square tiles are outlined in a mosaic of glass, stone and ceramic.

I’ll share more photos when the dining area and family room are complete. Meanwhile, the top photograph shows how striking the improvement can be when a kitchen is transformed from frog to prince. Click here to see other kitchens I’ve designed.
