The kitchen…we all know it is the heart of the home…even for families without cooks!!  We gather there, we snack there, we pull up a chair and we sit awhile!  And so when your kitchen does not “work” for the way you live, it is like the pebble in the shoe…everyday frustration…little irritation…constant tension…until finally…one day…you call AsterHouse!!!

The homeowners had purchased this home because it has several fabulous features…however, the kitchen and dining room were not included in that list.  They were anxious to make their home flow better for their young family and love of entertaining!!

We came up with a couple of options that would open up the space and turn this space into one of the best features of the home!!

Before, this space created a traffic jam anytime the fridge was open and anyone wanted to walk through…by relocating the fridge to the interior zone of the kitchen, the space becomes the perfect spot for the wine/serving station!!

The kitchen now flows naturally into the, once seldom used, dining space…the peninsula providing additional seating for those evening homework sessions…or space to layout the game-time spread!!

Bon Appetit!!
