This home featured a dark, narrow galley kitchen cut off from expansive windows and water views in the adjacent living areas. The goal was an updated and more open feel. By widening the kitchen and partially removing a wall to create a peninsula, the desired effect of opening the room up was achieved. Custom cherry Shaker cabinets with quartz countertops add a modern touch to the lines of this mid-century home. Cable lighting streamlines the room for a brighter, cleaner look.
