Welcome to the home of Jeremy & Christina Turner, Woodstock, NB! The homeowners came to Avondale Kitchens with plans to open up the kitchen a bit and make the most of their space. You will see below how expanding into the hallway can make a world of difference.
Take a look at the before photo. The half wall is creating a divide between the kitchen and hall area, which is an ideal space to expand into:
We sat down with the Turners to come up with a plan to increase storage and accessibility, with the goal to make the living area feel larger.
By removing the wall, and shifting the refrigerator to the back wall, the space is instantly doubled and plenty of room emerges for an island. Any cabinetry “lost” against the wall is replaced with more accessible island storage, a pull out pantry next to the fridge and a spacious corner pantry.
Here is a look from inside the kitchen, towards the living room, before:
Next up, the Avondale designs from that angle, showing wall removal and island placement:
And finally, the beautiful finished product. Wow! How bright an spacious:
Now lets take a closer look at the features of the kitchen.
Large drawers in the island and main cabinets are easy to use and organize, with no more bending and digging in to the backs of standard cabinets. Heavy duty soft close slides add a luxurious touch.
The custom corner pantry provides convenient storage for all dried goods and accessories:
A high volume garbage can, standard with all Avondale kitchens, keeps trash and recycling off the floor, with convenient clips for the trash bag and a plastic insert for recyclables.
The space under the sink is well used with a swing out garbage can, a roll out for cleaning supplies, a tea towel rack, and a flip down tray to store scrub pads and dishwasher tabs:
Even the pup approves of this makeover!
