Concord Kitchen

Visualize two cooks who love to entertain in one very small, confined galley kitchen. This dilemma challenged Kathy to do some very creative space planning.


  • Fireplace between the living room and kitchen was removed to open the space.
  • Living room coat closet was reversed to form kitchen niche for new large refrigerator.
  • New kitchen boasts high end Miele appliances, including a speed oven, owners’ favorite appliance for healthy cooking.
  • Two smaller single sinks with garbage disposals were installed, one for each cook.
  • Dining area was enlarged by recessing 3/4 of new buffet cabinet through wall into adjoining garage space.
  • Rich, earthy, masculine look was accomplished with use of multi-wood tones, fossil-look porcelain wall tile, and hand forged steel accents.
