Flanked by an adjacent in-law suite on the east and an inefficient pass-through on the south, the kitchen lacked natural light, work space, and a casual dining area. By eliminating the in-law suite and pass-through, the kitchen was enlarged to include an island and a breakfast room. Built-in shelves between the kitchen and family room defined the space and removed the bowling alley affect. The classically ornamented white cabinets and a blue island topped with marble were a perfect match for this Chevy Chase colonial, but the client’s true love was found in the details—a built-in wine refrigerator, spice drawers, and a corner pull out which efficiently used the corner base cabinet.
