Cheerful Park Hill Bungalow Kitchen to Start the Day

Cheerful Park Hill Bungalow Kitchen to Start the Day

February 25, 2015

We combined the outdated kitchen and dining room in this 1920s Park Hill bungalow to become a bright and cheery, but period-appropriate, open kitchen and new sitting room. The former living room at the front of the house has become the formal dining room. The homeowner told me after the project was completed that she didn’t realize how negatively the kitchen had affected her mood until now. She is happy now to start off every day in her new kitchen!

No more wall between the two rooms! We created a bright open kitchen with peninsula seating for two.
