Renovation for Open Plan Living - Dan and John Life
1.AFTER LR DR STAIR

Goals for renovation of this circa 1930’s home:
1.  increase openness and flow between kitchen, dining, and living rooms
2.  update and optimize kitchen
3.  maintain charm

2.AFTER LR Stair DR
Increasing the size of the openings and adding trim transformed the formerly small passageways to the living room (see photo below) into gracious openings between spaces.

However, the biggest transformation was in the small kitchen space.

AFTER K to LR
Previously, the view to the stair and living room was blocked by a refrigerator.

We envisioned how to open up the space and expose the stairway (relocating the refrigerator was key).

AFTER K to DR and LR
A large opening to the dining room is bookended by the refrigerator on one end and a wine bar (facing the dining room) on the other…

AFTER DR to K
achieving ease of access, new amenities, and good flow (where previously the dining room had been walled off from the kitchen).

As Dan’s initial concept sketch illustrated,

would raise potential for more family interactions.
