Kitchen Renovation: From Closed-in to Open Concept

Prior to the renovation, this kitchen was small and boxed in from the rest of the home’s main floor. It wasn’t a comfortable place to be in, and the family didn’t really use the main floor living room. All that has changed since the renovation.

Now, the open concept kitchen, dining and living space has become the most-used part of the home, say the homeowners.

To accomplish the transformation of this house – and the way the family uses it – Neil Matthews and his Trendsetter Renovations crew began by tearing out the walls surrounding the kitchen to create one large, open room.

With no walls to delineate the space, an island now serves as both a seating area and a way to separate the kitchen from the living room. Lights were added over the island, drawing attention to the new feature while also providing task lighting.

Removing the wall also allowed for more kitchen area, while creating a more usable space.
