An updated floorplan made all the difference in creating a striking space for cooking, eating, and entertaining in this Hudson kitchen. The original kitchen design cut the work area off from the rest of the house, creating an unnatural flow in the back of the house. The first step was to reimagine the space so it felt more integrated with the surrounding rooms. Out went the ‘80s-style peninsula that jutted into the kitchen and broke up the space; in its place, we installed a generous island that opened to the dining area and doubled the owners’ storage and prep space. Dated blue cabinetry, Formica countertops, and linoleum floors were replaced with crisp ceiling-height cabinets, natural stone counters, and hardwood flooring. A deep farmhouse-style sink, double wall ovens, and a state-of-the-art induction cooktop completed the transformation.
