Have you ever stood in your home and wondered what it would look like if you took a sledge hammer to a wall? Would it look big and open? Would it create an awkward flow and not be worth the mess and trouble?
That's what my clients wondered as they considered tearing down the wall that separates their kitchen and family room. They needed a design plan so they could visualize a new layout and to re-position the referigerator and dishwasher.
Here's the view of the appliances, showing the basic layout of the kitchen.
My design plan allows most of the existing cabinets to be used with only a few new ones that will be custom matched to the existing ones.
The full-sized cabinets were re-positioned and new cabinets added for additional work space.
From the family room side, the space is more open and appears much larger.
In my opinion, taking down unnecessary walls in a home can be a good option to create a large and open flow. A custom design plan allows you to see the final result before you spend your time and money!
