In This Segment

A kitchen with an awkward peninsula counter is reimagined by designer Ingrid Oomen as an open area that's inviting to cook and entertain in. See how she embraced old structural elements and shifted the focal point from dead space to shelving that is easy to access. Ingrid suggests practical ideas for making the most of a long, narrow kitchen, including the addition of a smart pantry/desk.
