Nowadays, removing a wall between a small kitchen and adjacent dining room is a popular request. In this Beaches kitchen, removing an existing wall was the start of a gorgeous transformation. With the wall removed, we increased the size of the kitchen and installed a large eat in island. We upgraded the dated cabinets with a face frame style in a pale grey to increase the light feeling in the space. An intricate quartzite counter pulls shades of cream, taupe, grey and caramel tying in the wood and beige elements throughout the rest of the house. Custom stools and drapery complete the look for a fresh update overall.
