Goodbye posts, hello light

A young family wanted a modern aesthetic with a new kitchen and eating area, which was part of a larger renovation of the house. By enhancing the support structure throughout the home, unattractive posts in the kitchen could be removed, opening up the area. Design challenges included eliminating dark disconnected spaces, varying ceiling heights and poor work flow in the kitchen. The play of light in the new kitchen makes it feel bright and airy. Task lighting complements the abundant natural light from enlarged windows over the sink and in the eating area.
