KITCHEN DESIGN STAMFORD, CT
When purchasing a home on the water, one hopes to be able to see the water from the most frequently used rooms in the house. This 80’s kitchen was hidden in the rear of the house behind the DR wall with only a pass through cutout resembling a Drs’ office. As a busy Drs. themselves, they knew the house had potential but didn’t know how to re-imagine better use of the space. Originally a waterfront cottage, the house had seen several additions over the years and each not constructed properly, as we discovered.
The main floor consisted of a large casual LR and DR as well as a hidden kitchen and a small powder room. Many existing support columns needed to remain which made reworking the space quiet challenging.
Ultimately a functional design solution was reached relocating the kitchen to the front to maximize water views, moving the DR to a more intimate location and creating a large working island, walk in pantry and a relocation of the powder room.
The island incorporates marble and a radius eat-up wood countertop with seating for four and features a built in banquet seat on the backside partnered with a French farm table and chairs. The new kitchen commands a breathtaking view of Long Island Sound.
As sailors, my clients wanted to incorporate a nautical, European look and feel.
