Manhattan Beach Dream Kitchen
The kitchen before remodel had minimal counter space, was too small and allowed little space for multiple cooks. By opening the wall to the dining room and consolidating two windows to one, the space opened to allow for an island and spacious layout.
A 70s-style bar on the left was converted into a kitchen pantry; two windows were consolidated to one large focal window, allowing more wall space for expanded layout.
A contemporary fireplace replaced an outdated brick mantel; symmetry was created with matching bookcases on either side. The television is mounted above the fireplace.
