"A formerly dark cluttered kitchen in a modular home is opened up to the family room, creating a joyful mixed use space, where cooking and relaxing can occur simultaneously. It’s light and airy, everyone can be together and lightened up to become a joyful space, and the hub of this family’s time together ."

Bringing in the Sun

Challenge

A modular home with very thick walls, and a dark closed in kitchen needed opening up to an adjacent family room to bring the light in.    The goal was to create a more open gathering space with a kitchen capable of preparing meals for large family gatherings.

Since two sections of modular home came together between the great room and kitchen, removing any of this 10" wall meant extensive structural alternations.

Big posts and headers were needed. The posts were disguised with decorative columns with a lot of detailing. They look intentional!

Between them, a 13’ piece of walnut with a live edge serves as an informal eating area.

Opening up between the two rooms and making them contiguous changed how the spaces feel.

They have just the right balance of light filled and airy, and warm and welcoming. Plus great views!

A banquette was built to at the far end of the kitchen and creates a breakfast nook.

The use of two colors of granite adds visual variety without blowing the budget. A gentle curve on the back of the island adds a nice detail.

Wellborn’s cabinets with Bishop doors are stylish - it’s a shaker style door with a little extra detailing, highlighted with Top Knobs hardware.
