The old kitchen was poorly organized (with four entry doors), and falling to pieces. The problems were solved by blocking up a doorway between the kitchen and bathroom, creating more counter space for the kitchen and room for a sink in the bathroom. The doors were removed between other rooms.The countertops have an unusual edge profile: a reverse bevel, or 'sharknose'. Lucy noticed this as an emerging trend in Europe and wanted to give it a shot. It was difficult to explain, but her contractor knew what she meant and got it just right.
