A Delicious Solution

This small kitchen was original to the home and in need of a new layout. The homeowners are very social and host parties regularly. A large island for entertaining was a must. To get the adequate space, Wood Wise designer Kathy Walker provided design options that included having the existing living room become the new formal dining room. This allowed the existing dining room to become part of the new kitchen layout. The wall between the kitchen and family room was removed to open up the rooms. Two solar tubes give bright natural light to this interior kitchen.   

Removing the walls between the family room, dining room, and kitchen makes this brick ranch live large.
