Reorienting this kitchen, allowed our client to gain a new perspective of his Lake Champlain views. He wanted a flexible space that would be comfortable for one but also open enough to entertain guests. The countertop was extended to create a cozy dining peninsula and a bank of windows was added where cabinetry previously hung. A walk-in pantry was placed just off the kitchen, the entry into the formal dining area was opened up, and the view into the living room was broadened. Finally, a new bonus dining area was created with the addition of a screened in porch.
