ABOUT THE PROJECT
For Sarah, who works in finance, and Becky, who works for a media company, the kitchen renovation was some time in the making. Sarah had been living in the one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment since 2010 (with Becky joining her in 2013) and had her sights set on overhauling the kitchen from the get-go.
A previous renovation had tiled off the kitchen, chopping up the open living space and giving guests a clunky raised border to trip over. White appliances and heavy cabinetry were outdated, and the kitchen’s generous square footage wasn’t all that useful for hosting or entertaining. Great space to stand around in, but not much else.
Keep it simple, we would tear out the L-line of cabinetry and use multiple variations on open and closed storage on each of the walls and in a central island. Plus, we geared up to create a new entry connecting the kitchen to the hallway, improving the flow around the apartment.
