Country French Kitchen Remodel: Suited For A Family Of 6!

With a family of 6, this crowded kitchen never worked well for the homeowners. The peninsula cooktop overlooked the breakfast area and family room, but walking around it created extra steps. The homeowners wanted a more open concept that would combine the three rooms into one as much as possible.
An additional request was that the overall feel remind my client of her grandmother's kitchen with a country French look, eliminating as many wall cabinets as possible. (Note the open shelves throughout - and the re-occurring brackets) To accomplish this, one wall was taken out along with the peninsula. This left enough space to include an island for cooking, and bar seating for the children to do their homework.

    I don't think I would have complained about the old kitchen, but I don't have a family of 6, so I also wouldn't be very crowded in there. I can see how the new kitchen really opened it up for them while still providing plenty of functionality. Nice work.

    I like both kitchens. I doesn't look as if it has the same amount of storage without the upper cabinets. Since the island is longer it might make up for the lack of upper cabinets.
