1950s Style Galley Kitchen Updated for Couple Aging In Place
The newly married couple in this Sherman Oaks residence knew they would age together in this house. It was a second marriage for each and they wanted their remodeled kitchen to reflect their shared aesthetic and functional needs. Here they could together enjoy cooking and entertaining for their many friends and family.
The traditional-style kitchen was expanded by blending the kitchen, dining area and laundry, maximizing space and creating an open, airy environment. Custom white cabinets, dark granite counters, new lighting and a large sky light contribute to the feeling of a much larger, brighter space.
The separate laundry room was eliminated and the washer/dryer are now hidden by pocket doors in the cabinetry. The adjacent bathroom was updated with white beveled tile, rich wall colors and a custom vanity to complement the new kitchen.
The comfortable breakfast nook adds its own personality with a brightly cushioned
custom banquette and antique table that the owner was determined to keep!
