From Enclosed Kitchen to Open Concept Living

Get ready for an open concept transformation, at the home of Geoffrey and Kelley Hall in Fredericton, NB.

First we will take a look at some of the before shots.  You can see here a typical home with smaller rooms divided into dedicated spaces. The enclosed kitchen creates a darker atmosphere, sparking the need and desire for an open, light and airy kitchen space.

Construction began, walls were removed, and pretty soon we were on the way to open concept living. Thanks to contractor Hugh McLaughlin. Notice how much light immediately fills the space.

Now that the kitchen and formal living room have been combined, the feeling of luxury, light and freshness is prominent.  With walls removed, there is plenty of space for a large island, giving extra seating while also increasing counter and storage space in the kitchen.

Removing the existing bulkhead and taking the cabinets to the ceiling allow for maximum space usage, and create the illusion of a larger room.


A small bar sink in the island is the perfect spot for washing up veggies, or preparing drinks and snacks for entertaining.


A built in desk to match the kitchen cabinets creates a multi purpose work space while keeping the fluidity of the kitchen.


Built in bench seats give extra drawer storage, while keeping ample seating space that was eliminated from the separate living area.  Drawers match kitchen cabinets to keep the room cohesive.



A big thank you to Geoffrey and Kelley for choosing Avondale for your exciting project!
