Decatur – Modern Craftsman
Southeast Regional CotY Award for Best Residential Kitchen.
Atlanta Chapter CotY Award for Best Residential Kitchen.
Featured in Better Homes & Gardens Kitchen + Bath Ideas
These Decatur homeowners love to cook and entertain. Unfortunately, the kitchen in this Craftsman style bungalow was narrow and disconnected from all other living spaces and even included their laundry – not exactly a chef’s kitchen. In their new space, these clients wanted:
- A larger, more open kitchen without adding footprint or losing any rooms
- Access to the rear deck
- A modern yet warm aesthetic
- A space where they can spend much of their time
It was a challenge to give the homeowners the space they needed to cook and entertain without adding any footprint. We looked at the home as a whole and did some careful square footage analysis. By removing the wall with the laundry, as well as a wall that was separating the kitchen and wasted hallway space, we successfully enlarged the kitchen and gained access to the back deck – without adding to the home’s footprint or losing any valuable space. Designing from a holistic point of view, we were able to give these homeowners the chef’s kitchen they always wanted and the modern design aesthetic they were looking for.
