This kitchen was big on space – however it was wide open space that was under utilized. The entire back was open. The homeowner previously had a small kitchen table just beyond the peninsula, but we had other ideas as there was also open space at the other end of the kitchen.
We decided to move the table to the right end of the kitchen opening, which opened up a huge space – perfect for pantries that would provide a huge amount of storage.
Next step was building out two pantries – one to hold food items and a second to hold kitchen appliances and essentials. So much storage – a home cook’s dream!
Originally we considered installing matching kitchen cabinets and granite in the space between the pantries, but decided on a piece of furniture and art which dresses up the kitchen and ties nicely to the reclaimed wood & iron bar table at the other end of the kitchen.
Phase One is complete and the pantries look like they have always been there!
