Before : Asymmetrical kitchen lacking balance & light, structural elements that couldn’t be moved but had to be addressed.


Our Plan : By moving the door to the back wall, we gained a significant amount of counter space and cabinets. To add symmetry and make the existing beam virtually disappear, the sink and window were moved to the left. Now the beam is centered on the cabinets and the light fixtures, giving the space much needed balance.


After : Beautiful light and much needed balance.
