Kitchen Islands / August 9, 2018 / Kalani Suggs.
To solve the problem of a tight, cramped kitchen with an awkward layout and a lack of continuous countertops. They replaced the wall between the dining room and the kitchen with a recessed beam to create a more open floor plan.
As they are softer and more porous, not to mention stain and scratch faster. Cheaper cabinetry and hinges may save you money up front, but often incur higher maintenance costs in the long run.
This modern kitchen update required taking out part of the wall, which completely changed the layout. The small island in the original kitchen does not encourage frequent use. The clients wanted an improved flow, ample space to cook and bake, and updated materials and appliances.
The glossy black and speckled gray counters of the kitchen mirror the rest of the home's incorporation of concrete and steel.
