Closed Kitchen Is Opened Into Great Room

Entire main living area reworked for life and entertaining.

The struggle was real for these homeowners with their old cabinets and closed-off kitchen. This story is all to familiar for CQC Home, but for these homeowners, they really couldn’t wait to open up their space.

We removed the masonry fireplace from the center of the house which divided the kitchen from the family room and installed a gas fireplace on the exterior wall to open up the kitchen to the family room which truly made this a “GREAT” room!

We used Kraftmaid’s Maple Lyndale shaker white cabinets for the perimeter with stone countertops and a red painted shaker island with a solid walnut butcher block countertop. The island has a white farmhouse style apron front sink and the dishwasher is virtually impossible to locate, as it has a paneled front to match the cabinetry. The hood is wrapped in walnut to tie the island into the perimeter and a family home center has a bulletin board for daily communication.

Pantry cabinets have rollout trays for ease of access. A broom closet to the right of the refrigerator allows for full access to all drawers in the refrigerator. The mud room has cubbies for backpacks, coats and work bags for this busy family!
