Turning things on their head

May 1, 2011

So our designer came to see the space, and listened.

We’re going to tear down the wall to the TV room, and then have an island.

The existing kitchen is really meant for one person, presumbably a 1960s housewife

But we hate the foot print, we added. There really is no room for two people, oh and when the dishwasher is open and someone is at the stove (as D’ is, at left), it’s downright dangerous – he has about 9 inches to move!

She listened, she paused.

And then she turned things on their head, and said something that changed the whole scope of the project.

“With such a goregeous floor-to-ceiling window in your TV room, why don’t you put the kitchen in there?”

Truly brilliant. If we hate the existing footprint, why keep tear down the wall and keep the same footprint?

And so Irene Langlois went to her drawing board, and came up with something we hadn’t even contemplated.

    I feel your pain. I’ve cooked in some small kitchens. My kitchen now is older, but it’s nice and big.
