When the clients moved into this house the existing kitchen was old and tired. There was a large peninsular with overhead cabinets blocking the view from the kitchen to the dining space, making the space feel small and dark.
We replaced this with a new peninsular which had better storage and included breakfast bar seating. The old dining area housed a large freestanding dresser and second fridge.
We installed a new larger fridge freezer within the kitchen space and in the dining space we installed a new built-in dresser matching the new kitchen, bringing the two spaces together as one linked space.
