Lisa Shapiro, Shapiro Interior Designs, Kitchens and Bath Design

The client wanted a contemporary kitchen that would transition well with a traditional center hall colonial.

At first the client approached me to do a partial renovation.  After discussing their needs and wishes, we quickly determined that the partial renovation would cost nearly the same as the full remodel!

The kitchen layout and cabinets were original to the home.  The small island and awkward angle left a lot of opportunity to maximize the space and also greatly improve the traffic patterns. By opening up the floor and traffics plans, we were able to increase cabinet storage space by approximately 50%.

The charcoal grey cabinets, Cambria Britannica waterfall countertops, and chandelier drop backsplash gave the client their dream kitchen.

Kitchen Design Features

Waterfall Countertop

The waterfall countertop on both sides of the island

Workspace Separation from Entertaining Space

The work space is on the right side of the island separating it from the entertaining space. This allows the homeowners to entertain and keep their work space from becoming too congested.

Appealing Symmetry

Centering the kitchen sink, island, with the range on the wall makes for appealing symmetry

Window Seat with Storage

We were able to add a window seat with storage underneath.  Also, we removed the L-shaped cabinet run and opened up the work space to the dining area for better traffic flow.
