North Terrace Kitchen

The owners of this Maplewood, New Jersey home had their contractor in place, the walls were down to the studs, but they were not yet comfortable with the design and layout of the space. They therefore turned to Idea Space Architecture + Design to assist them in developing the kitchen they had been visualizing. The original space was very tight and didn’t allow more than two people in the kitchen at any given time. The dishwasher and oven could not be opened simultaneously. Once on board we provided the client with thoughtful solutions that met their needs. We were able to open up the space into an adjacent porch and raise the beam in the house to allow one cohesive ceiling plane. A soothing finish palette was developed to offset the active lifestyle of this family with two small children.
