A New Open Floor Plan modern-family-room

A New Open Floor Plan

The Beginning: A separate kitchen and family room often divided this family of four to separate living spaces.

The Concept: Remove the wall and create an open floor plan between the kitchen and family room. Connect the spaces visually with new architectural elements and colors.

This project is from many years ago and all the drawing are filed away. I think the dimension from the end of island to the columns is 42"-48". I do not have info on the size of the family room. Cheers, Meredith
