Willow Glen Kitchen Remodel

Functionality of the kitchen was improved by relocating the refrigerator to the opposite side of the room, and closer to the sink, thus improving the work triangle. Removing the peninsula extension offered more flexibility to the nook-dining area and allowed for a new built-in buffet which provided supplementary counter space, storage and a visual "feature" upon entering the kitchen from foyer. Selecting a 48" range eliminated the need for a double oven. Instead, a continuous countertop reinforced the movement of the natural granite and overall sense of openness to the space.
