The couple wanted an open kitchen that reflected their home’s coastal setting. They also wanted a design that would be safe for their 3-year-old daughter, Emma. “The big thing was I couldn’t see my daughter,” Rachel says. “We were trying to keep our eyes on her and it was difficult.”
The homeowners brought in kitchen designer Nicole Whitehorn and contractor Ruck Walsh to create a modern, family-friendly kitchen with clear sightlines to the living room and the beautiful coastal views.
Whitehorn removed the partition wall and peninsula to open up the kitchen and change its closed-off layout. This added 72 square feet to the kitchen area, enough room for a large island with extra prep space, storage and a sink. Parisian-style bistro chairs with rattan frames and woven navy-and-white seats add space for eating or working at the new island.
Waterview Kitchens was hand-picked by one of Houzz’s writers to be featured in an editorial ideabook on their homepage.
