Having enough space is only half the battle when it comes to a functional kitchen design. The owners of a 1926 Colonial in Chevy Chase were very familiar with this issue when they tapped architect Bruce Wentworth to renovate their kitchen.
Crisp, white Woodharbor cabinetry, beveled subway tiles from Waterworks and white granite countertops respect the home’s classic origins while introducing a fresh, transitional flair. “The portion of the kitchen that is open to the family room has no upper cabinets so it keeps it very minimal and doesn’t feel as ‘kitcheny,’” Wentworth says.
The owners are thrilled with the design. “They had space to do a much nicer kitchen,” observes the architect, “but it was just not utilized properly. They needed a better design.”
