A cluttered kitchen is transformed into an organized space, complete with top-notch appliances (including two stoves!), an open-plan layout and plenty of storage. See how architect Wanda Ely gave homeowners Ferris and Aaron Grant their dream space.

As a chef, Aaron dreamed of having a restaurant-style kitchen that’s both functional and family-friendly. To achieve this, Wanda merged the home’s dining and living space with the kitchen by adding a long table that doubles as a prep station and a place to eat. A pegboard continues the length of the area, where a collection of pots and pans transitions to a display of family photos. A large pantry that’s built atop the original exposed brick, mismatched dining chairs and rustic finishes add character to the space.
