Before moving into their newly purchased 2008 Carmel townhouse, this homeowner wanted to create a transitional kitchen by removing a central wall. The goal was to combine the kitchen and dining room without losing any of the space’s original functionality.
Discovering New Space
By removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room, the entire first floor became dramatically more open and bright. After a complete cabinet makeover and appliance overhaul, the new space was almost unrecognizable from its initial design and layout.
Still in excellent condition, the existing cabinetry was revitalized and modernized with new paint and hardware. The only change? A customized wine rack was built into a hollowed cabinet opening.
Pop of Navy Blue
The home’s initial triangular island offered limited seating or storage space. By introducing a longer, rectangular island, the homeowners gained more room for entertaining along with a sleeker design. The island was finished with a darker shade to maintain the desired navy blue kitchen aethstetic.
