This kitchen previously was an awkward shape with a door opening breaking up the flow. It didn't utlilize the kitchen's square footage. The new kitchen is a different story. The door was closed off and the kitchen took on a more traditional shape with a large island. The new layout makes cooking and day to day kitchen activites much easier. The gorgeous finishes are defiantley don't hurt. White cabinets, white beveled subway tile backsplash, and the stunning matte quartz counters.
