Like kitchens found in many city residences, this high-end Italian kitchen had a spacing challenge: it had a narrow galley-style kitchen. Because major changes to the structure of this space were not feasible, in this project, our designers were tasked with using design ingenuity to establish a feeling of openness and width.
Our kitchen designers were able to demolish one entry wall to this space, which had a big impact in creating a feeling of openness in this kitchen. The L-shaped bar at the end of the modern kitchen also had a big impact by visually extending the kitchen beyond the confines of the galley and making use of living space that likely would have remained unused anyway. Visual extension continued with the choice of dual rows of 19-inch cabinets, which created a verticality that rivals the lack of width in the space. Lines within the overall kitchen layout design were also used to create a visual illusion of width.
A stunning brick wall that already existed in the space was made a focal point here, paired with laminate and glass panels. The combination of the three creates a beautiful aesthetic, and the white glass is used again for the backsplash in the kitchen, which ties it all together. Overall, our design team was proud of its ability to reimagine the use of space, structure, and layout in this luxury kitchen, which in its finished form is impressive in its ergonomic ease and inviting atmosphere.
