better flow - the kitchen traditional-kitchen

better flow - the kitchen

This project involved reworking the entire first floor of an existing two story home. Dark spaces interrupted by a confusing and awkward circulation pattern have been replaced with light filled spaces and a rational path from room to room. It's a lesson that quality of space trumps quantity of space every time.

I like having short overhangs on some of the island. Not the whole way around but maybe 2 or 3 sides. One side without them will hold the dishwasher and maybe drawers?
