A Family Kitchen

A view to the family room, an enclosed pantry large enough for big-box items, and breakfast bar seating for five help make this kitchen more family friendly.


By Michael O'Brien, Contributor January 27, 2014
This article first appeared in the PB January 2014 issue of Pro Builder.

The floor plan for this suburban family home included a kitchen that was undersized and isolated. While there was a large family room adjacent to the kitchen, the room was separated from the rest of the house. The kitchen’s bay provided an area for seating, but was much too tight for everyday use.

 
 
Our solution not only opens the kitchen to the family room, but also offers more functional work areas, additional storage space, and seating for five in the new breakfast area.
