This cooking space had a problematic layout.
Though the kitchen itself is generously sized, the space wasn't being used to its full potential, and the old finishes looked tired and lacked contrast. An inconvenient diagonal corner and a bulky peninsula disrupted any sense of flow the space may have had. A wall separating the eating area from the family room also made the kitchen feel closed in. Featureless laminate cabinets and countertops were boring and outdated, and the plain ceramic tile floor and backsplash were mismatched.
