Modifying a galley kitchen arrangement to satisfy the needs of a growing family with multiple cooks was the challenge facing Mastercraft Design, Inc.’s Rita McSorley. The plans for a kitchen that doubled as a place for family gatherings included an informal seating area and designated spaces for cookbooks and a television. The use of multiple types of wood and finishes helped to create different zones within the kitchen. The finished space serves as a center for cooking and entertaining as well as a link to the newly renovated dining room.
