Open Floor Kitchen Remodel, Glastonbury, CT
The new space looks nothing like it was before. Original kitchen was too small, and adjacent areas had a few other problems.
The front door opened straight into the wall of a long narrow hallway. It created a 90 degree turn to get into the family room.
The door between the kitchen and dining room made the traffic flow awkward for both areas.
Coat closet in the front hallway located right across the stairwell, created potential fall hazard when opening the door.
With the rear porch door left in place, the two side windows were swapped and the kitchen was relocated to the opposite wall.
Hallway walls were taken down and the coat closet was relocated away from the stairs.
Door opening between the dining room and former kitchen was restored.
After remodeling, all rooms became bigger and more functional. New beautiful kitchen has a central island and a built-in breakfast nook.
Family room also feels more open. Dining Room has a better traffic flow and holds the potential for a bigger table to seat more guests.
