Our client was eager to renovate her 2001 home’s original kitchen and flooring. After purchasing the home from her parents, she asked us to create an open floorplan with a lighter, more modern color palette. KBF designed an entirely new floorplan, removing the wall that divided the kitchen from the family room and adding a large center island. The new plan also included relocating the existing appliances and creating a new focal point for the entire space – a gorgeous range hood that extends to the soaring ceiling. Our client wanted to remove a blank wall in the kitchen (next to the original location of the refrigerator), however, we learned that this was a load-bearing point for the home’s second story and removing it would not be feasible. Instead, we suggested converting that blank wall area into a coffee bar by capturing the space from the closet in the hallway behind it. Our client was thrilled with the idea and KBF created a coffee bar/beverage station with a barrel ceiling, a rich wood finish on the cabinetry and floating shelves, sconce lighting, and a patterned tile to add interest and a bit of whimsy to the new space. The stunning range hood was custom built on-site and a local artist designed and applied the plaster finish. The hood’s finishing touch is the wood trim that echoes the cabinetry of the adjacent coffee bar. A Zellige ceramic tile is the perfect choice for the backsplash as it offers a modern yet timeless look. The massive center island’s cabinetry boasts a fabulous shade of green that brings an earthy and inviting feel to the entire space, while oversized pendants make a bold statement and provide a soft glow to the kitchen and the family room beyond.
