This family-friendly kitchen is the result of an architect's design for his own family's 1920's bungalow. The originally cramped kitchen was made comfortable through a few key moves and innovative storage.

The kitchen, in the home of Utah architect Warren Lloyd, was expanded with his growing family. What was once an awkward U-shaped kitchen is now opened up to include banquette seating and an island. Mismatched cabinets built by an Amish carpenter give the appearance of being added organically over time. Appliances are hidden away in a cabinet that is built to look like a free-standing hutch.
