A customer with a home built in 1910 came to me with a challenge. She wanted a kitchen with more storage, more counter space, and room for standard appliances – without expanding the existing footprint. I designed a solution that kept the footprint intact, maximized placement of the cabinets and standard appliances (e.g., a much needed dishwasher), and included new features such as an opening to the dining room with a bar. No additional square footage was added and there is more usable space to prepare meals and entertain guests.
