Kitchen Floor Plan Updated in Hope Valley NorthTypical features for a 1969 kitchen floor plan. The walls were separated from the main living spaces. After all, who wanted to see dirty dishes while entertaining. But, these days, it’s all about being part of the family. Really sharing time together and making space for friends and family to watch “the show” that we call dinner. For this family, it was the last room in the house that needed to be updated to better fit their lifestyle. Before Kitchen Floor Plan After Kitchen Floor Plan We opted to start by tearing down the walls. This helped to open up the space from the kitchen and the den. This allowed for us to incorporate a multi-use peninsula in the u-shape kitchen design. We have lots of storage opportunities, as well as, seating for coffee and breakfast, doing homework in the afternoon, or helping prep the veggies for dinner. By removing the wall, it required us to relocate the refrigerator.We are excited with the new floor plan results. The new kitchen space is both open for entertaining, but also inviting enough to pull up a stool and come hang out while preparing meals for the family. Another great add to this space was the pendant light fixtures. They are both pinterest worthy, but also functional in helping define the kitchen space.
