When this young family purchased their first home, they knew renovations were soon to come and decided to write down target areas for change. The original design had a cut out in the wall separating the dining room from the kitchen and although it helped visually to open the space, the kitchen was too small to entertain guests, let alone keep an eye on their toddler. The decision was made to remove the dividing wall and merge the two rooms creating a larger layout. AyA Kitchens designer Sandra Mendes walks us through this now stunning open and spacious contemporary kitchen. See the before & after reveal and what went into this dream kitchen.
