In today's review, we propose to consider the transformation of a small kitchen by adequate redevelopment using the example of architect Dan Morales. Owners of the majestic house in colonial style intended to modernize the premises, create a more modern, not too strict room for both the reception of guests and for everyday family breakfasts and dinners. To implement the plan was carried out redevelopment of premises, while they borrowed 3,5 m from the neighboring living room. Look at how it was before the reorganization, and how it became after it (bottom photo).
The last reconstruction was completed in 1990-ies, then in the L-shaped kitchen there was no island. There was something like a small peninsula, which made it impossible to store necessary utensils in certain places. According to the designer, the problem of the previous plan was insufficient area. It was impossible to carry out visual zoning.
After: The picture shown is all the same angle. In the process of redevelopment, windows were added in each zone, which opened wonderful views of the patio. «Daylight creates comfort and coziness, "- said the representative of Gilday Renovations.
Reasonable organization of space allowed to establish an impressive structure with a white marble surface, a steel Julien shell, two Kitchen Aid dishwashers. Universality of the kitchen island allows you to simultaneously work for several people, without interfering with each other.

More than a meter (1,2 m) separates the island from the surrounding panels. Everything is provided for comfortable moving and working. Below the main refrigerator there are two refrigerated boxes for packages with milk and juices for children and two freezers for easy access. Since the house is often welcomed, a wine cabinet was installed.
"Two children grow up in the family who leave their prints on furniture and doors made of stainless steel. I really like that the appliances were covered with panels, "says the hostess.
Since homeowners wanted to make the best use of every centimeter, they were equipped with storage systems kitchen utensils on the perimeter of the entire room. For storage of spices, a built-in box from Viking was provided.
The owners wanted to get attractive stylish appliances, which are suitable for daily use and festive dinners. In addition to the range from Viking, the kitchen now includes a microwave and an oven from Kitchen Aid.
Coffered ceilings visually unite the room. A custom screen, designed for storing presses, divides the room.
This building plan shows the previously existing space constraint.
After: the new plan shows how organically the kitchen coexists with adjacent rooms, nothing prevents free movement.
