This handy secretary's nook is tucked into the hallway adjacent to the kitchen in place of a small closet.

Enclosed Kitchen BEFORE Photo 
BEFORE: An enclosed kitchen and hall doorway.
AFTER:  In the revised layout we replaced the two enclosing walls with two discrete wrapped columns. The granite high bar is well suited to open kitchen plan. The window was widened to allow for a garden window -- ideal for herbs and fragrant blooms. Once again we removed the soffits to allow for 42" wall cabinets and installed in-cabinet and under cabinet lighting. We redirected the power lines, installed an overhead vent and relocated the range to provide for a functional island countertop. Now meal prep doesn't have to sacrifice eye to eye conversation to focus on the task at hand.Open Kitchen Plan with new bay window
