Before and After Kitchen ~ Add an Island and Increase Storage

This was a simple kitchen remodel where we added an island, opened up a wall, increased storage and gave the kitchen a makeover.  A great example of maximizing your space and getting the most out of a remodel no matter what size shape or budget.  


The basic floor plan of this kitchen didn't change, but adding the new island cabinetry and counter surface has certainly changed its function, not to mention the additional base cabinet, countertop surface and upper storage that were added to a once empty wall.  


There is not more than double the amount of countertop space and six new drawers on the island not to mention the 3 additional drawers added next to the new wine cooler location.  Oh and it went from basic cabinets to include a corner base lazy susan, four more drawers in the original kitchen footprint to make a total of 16 drawers in this kitchen, oh and a pull-out waste bin that was non-existent in the original kitchen.
