The original layout of this Florida apartment separated the dining and kitchen areas, making the home feel dark and cramped. By removing some of the walls, the ocean views can now be enjoyed from the dining table, the barstools in the kitchen and the large living room.
The kitchen forms the heart of the apartment, offering ample seating, large countertop surface, bright lighting and an open format into the family room. Keeping with the design of the living area, the kitchen remains mostly white with neutral accents. The kitchen layout was completely reconfigured from the original version. Walls were knocked down, cabinets were relocated and custom made and state of the art appliances were installed. To maximize natural and artificial light to the closed corner, everything was kept white and glossy. Mirrors were used as backsplash and on the adjacent accent wall to create a deeper sense of space and reflection.
This view accentuates the open design and amplification of natural light into the space. The original layout of the kitchen blocked off the window, limiting both views to the exterior and natural lighting.

This bright, contemporary eat-in kitchen features bold yellow curtains and graphic yellow upholstered stools lining the island. The large gray island boasts a white marble countertop, linear drawer pulls and a built-in cooktop. Recessed lighting and a trio of pendant lights illuminate the lively space.
