Kitchen in Leawood, Kansas

Kitchen - After

My clients wanted to update their family room. After carefully assessing the first floor of the home, we agreed that their needs went beyond new furniture in the family room. The kitchen did not lack in size; it did, however, lack in storage, flow, and function.

By eliminating the bulky peninsula that cut the kitchen off from the rest of the space, we were able to install a new island that holds a Wolf cooktop, and a deep 28” drawer for convenient storage and easy access to pots and pans. A larger T-shaped island was installed in order to provide seating for eight and eliminates the need for a large dining table. In the middle of the island, 12” deep cabinets on either side provide extra storage for occasionally used cookware.

Creating additional counter and storage space was a must for this family of six, especially since the original kitchen lacked a designated pantry space. By relocating the refrigerator beside the new double wall ovens, we were able to install two space-saving pull-out pantry cabinets. By removing the soffit and installing taller cabinets, the visual height AND the available storage was increased in this kitchen.

While still two distinct spaces, the hearth room now flows beautify into the kitchen, joined together by the new T-shaped quartz island. Because this new extension eliminated the need for their large dining room table, the old dining space is now occupied by two comfortable leather swivel chairs that double as a conversation space and as a comfortable TV viewing area. In the small corner leading from the kitchen to the formal dining room, we also added new built-in storage and buffet, perfect for serving and storing glassware and serving pieces.
