A Kitchen to Accommodate
The kitchen renovation in this 1970s Dunwoody home was just part of a major home remodel that included a living room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and powder room. The mission of the project was to open the spaces into two larger, multi-functional areas and to create an interior that boasted charm and character. The former laundry room became a mudroom and entryway, freeing the entire back wall of the kitchen for a strong feature wall that includes a cooktop, decorative hood vent and hand-glazed subway tile. A large island with seating to accommodate four was centered in the kitchen, allowing ample room for a family-sized dining table. The old bay window was repurposed to incorporate a window seat. Though the owners were initially skeptical about the installation of the unique dining table and spherical chandelier, they are now well-received as one-of-a-kind pieces that add an element of the unexpected, yet still complement the space.
