Organized, practical, and attainable. The Valentine kitchen is small project focused on function, detail, and maximizing a limited budget without compromising the client’s needs.
This kitchen upgrade involved realistic, practical changes as well as clever use of existing space.
A narrow, unusable closet and dead wall space of a chimney flue was opened up and converted into built-ins and a new, more functional location for the fridge. A cramped, shallow peninsula was replaced with a kitchen island that provides a focal point, conversation area, and ample circulation space.
The resulting design accentuates openness and flow while rustic details allow the client’s personality to shine.
