One big challenge of apartment living can be creating separate spaces within an open floor plan, and all without making your space feel disjointed. Brooklyn residents Chris and Jenny were faced with this dilemma as their kitchen is smack dab in the middle of their apartment.
Luckily, they were able to make the kitchen feel like a distinct space, all while still feeling part of the whole, and being welcoming as well.
Thanks to their high ceilings, Chris and Jenny were able to make the most of vertical storage space around the refrigerator and range. The frosted glass cabinet fronts allow them to hide clutter, while not feeling to heavy for the space.
The island counter, which keeps the sightline clear, also serves as a physical boundary for what constitutes the kitchen. The barstools provide a more casual seating environment than the adjacent dining area, and make you want to pull up a chair to talk with the chef.
