Bedford Corners Residence
This project was a gut-renovation to the kitchen, dining and living areas of the residence, along with an adjacent powder room and upstairs main bathroom. The spaces had previously felt dark and disconnected and the updates created a consistent feel across the main areas of the house. In order to brighten the space, and make it feel more expansive; the knee wall that divided the kitchen and dining area was removed and the opening between the dining room and living room was expanded. With these changes the spaces flowed more freely into each other. Custom cabinets were designed to take advantage of the full height of the space and kept tightly to the perimeter to allow for a better circulation pattern around the kitchen island and in the living room. The divided-lite windows were replaced with casement and awning style picture windows, and the back doors were replaced with pocketing sliding doors, clearing the expansive view of the back of the property of obstructions. To further the idea of maximum illumination, the island countertop was fitted with LED tiles below it to back light the entire slab of stone, accentuating it's natural veining and soft textures. Square, trimless LED lights were added throughout the space and artful pendants were hung over the island and dining room table to visually connect the two spaces.
