Classic Portland Kitchen 28 PHOTOS

This charming home had a kitchen with a very low ceiling and very little storage. (See BEFORE photos) Location of support beams required working within the existing footprint. Thinking outside the box created as much storage as possible. The homeowner wanted a table in the family room. A banquet flanked by two hutch-like cabinets for china, crystal and serving pieces provided charm and storage. The wall between the old dining room and kitchen was removed and a countertop with stools was added on this side. The final touch was updating the living room fireplace with a mantel and stacked field stone.

Peninsula now extends to the wall. The extra depth allowed the drawer and the cabinet with pull-outs below to serve as the Homeowner's office space.
