The new owners of this Johns Island home wanted to update and expand the small, dark kitchen. To accomplish this goal, the laundry room was relocated to the second floor, allowing us to enlarge the kitchenâ€™s footprint. A large cased opening, leading to the dining room, was added to make the space feel more open. Triple casement windows allow for an abundance of natural light and provide a beautiful view of the backyard. Brand new, white cabinetry, Torquay countertops and white subway tile backsplash help make the space feel bright and open.
