In this house we kept the footprint of the kitchen the same but knocked down a wall and put in a breakfast bar. Removing the wall opened up the room to the dining area and makes the room appear much larger than it is. Taking the cabinets up to ceiling height by using 42” wall cabinets, improved storage and eliminated the clutter that collected on top of the old cabinets.
The owner opted to use laminate countertops that he preferred over stone. This would allow him to upgrade it in the future if he so desired. The end result is a clean uncluttered look perfect for the homeowner’s needs and wants!
