Creating an Inviting Space for Gathering

There is a lot to be said for having a space dedicated to a certain function, as the saying goes “A place for everything, and everything in its place.” However, these homeowners felt constrained by their small kitchen and separate dining room. They craved a more open space, where form and function flow, where everything still has its own place, but it all works together harmoniously.  

A contractor himself, the homeowner turned to ACo Designer Carlie Suski for guidance on design selections and getting the most out of their new floorplan. First up was tearing down the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room, creating a much grander space. Opening up the wall allowed the kitchen to be pushed back and expanded, while taking advantage of light from multiple sets of windows. White backsplash tile and perimeter cabinets help bounce the natural light around the room creating a bright airy feeling.   

This new larger space allows ample room for an oversized island, perfect for hosting larger gatherings. They were also able to upgrade to larger appliances and create a conveniently placed coffee bar and beverage station. Family and friends will be eager to gather round the Café Noir stained island with custom natural Hickory butcher block, and with their favorite beverage in hand raise a toast to a lovely space and gracious hosts.
