Stunning remodel in Pensacola Florida!
Having designed a more functional layout for this kitchen years ago, we were disappointed when the clients had to cut the project short to relocate out of town unexpectedly. Lucky for us, they rented the house out in the interim and we had the chance to revisit the project with them a couple years after their return. This design was really about identifying the needs of a growing young family who love to be together and cook while balancing the aesthetic qualities that inspired them. It was of the utmost importance to establish a new flow for their day to day – homework, projects, dance parties, and football get togethers (note the cozied-up great room we assisted with that keep mom and dad around the kids for all sorts of fun).
Improved function and flow
Identifying the need to temper a grand space that exhibited a lot of unused volume and terrible transitions, we opened up the pantry to be more a part of the kitchen design, designed and executed a beautiful faux plaster hood surround that helped accentuate the amazing blue-black Le Cornufe range, and created a dedicated work space for Dad’s dinners on a gorgeous end-grain custom wood countertop. From a shallow space where the old-school desk setup used to be, we carved out just the right number of inches for a breakfast and snack hutch for the kiddos alongside a great baking center for mom (when she’s not playing hostess with the mostest at her bar setup!) We love those busy working professionals who also need their own down time and we enjoyed bringing this project to life for them – modernizing and re-integrating better function and flow to the hub of their home space in a way that genuinely adds value to their investment there.
