Albera Kitchen Remodel
The existing 1980’s vintage kitchen had a peninsula with low hanging upper cabinets that isolated the kitchen from the living room. The low ceilings made it cave like. The refrigerator was stuck in a back corner, creating congestion and tension between the already dueling cooks. The old wolf stove did not work and was too large for the space.
We removed the peninsula to gain more light, floor space, and connectivity between the living room and the kitchen. We relocated the refrigerator to the living room side of the kitchen and enclosed it in custom cabinetry. We created a chef’s pantry and deep storage in the corner adjacent to the new slide in range. We built in the microwave into the lower cabinets, to free up more counter space. To eliminate counter clutter, a built in coffee maker was installed into the wall. To create a higher ceiling, we were able to elevate the center ceiling space above the Island and add a large crown molding and two pendant hung lights over the Island, rendering a taller more expansive look.
