Wise Design helped this large family realize their vision for a charming, airy farmhouse kitchen. The existing space was small and cluttered with a major lack of storage. We designed a new plan for the kitchen by removing the existing kitchen and extending it across the whole width of the house. To accommodate their large family, we incorporated a large central island with bar seating. We designed traditional inset cabinetry with a full height pantry on the fridge wall, a small desk cabinet for mail and a hoosier style cabinet to display glassware. We removed the original entryway door to the kitchen and created a built-in dining banquette. To add some farmhouse charm, we paneled the ceiling, added an apron front sink, detailed the cabinets with corbels and used traditional cabinet latch hardware.
