These side-by-side comparisons help explain the relocation and might seem a bit trickier because of the walls that moved, but that’s part of the fun! The front door remained in the same location and if you had entered and turned left immediately, this is what you would have seen and what you see now! Same angle!
If you look closely at the before image above, you’ll see the brick fireplace in the pass-through window above the cooktop– and in this before photo below, you’ll see the kitchen cabinets on the far left wall, so hopefully that helps give a little bit of reference to the previous layout. This pass-through wall obviously came out and opened up the space for their new, large kitchen and dining area! The dining area is to the left of the island when looking at the range.
It’s almost the same angle, but at least you get the idea! The original built-ins were in the living room and are still in the same location. They were completely updated to create a ton of storage in the kitchen as well as a multi-function counter top! (This is the right angle wall in the new space.) You’ll see that the wall to the left of the before image is a solid wall and now it leads to the family room. There’s so much more space and feels so much lighter and brighter!
I love seeing all of these spaces take on a new life and love that the homeowners are already telling me stories about having their friends and family over— and how everyone can’t believe this is the same space!
