The open concept plan makes this space perfect for entertaining, allowing someone to be in the kitchen and still remain a part of the conversation. The wide galley style kitchen provides plenty of counter space for preparation, while the bar stools and the large kitchen table provide plenty of seating for entertaining. The neutral colors and large windows in this space allow tons of natural light in, making this home warm and inviting while reflecting the serenity of the beach that surrounds this home.
Contemporary Chef's Kitchen is Perfect for Entertaining
The chef's kitchen is designed for cooking as well as entertaining. A full bar area has open shelving for glassware, backlit wine racks and wine refrigerator, while the expansive island provides the two separate cooking areas and tons of prep space.
A long wall, that had separated the kitchen from the living space, was removed as well, creating the opportunity to add a large island that helps define the space. Corbels on either side of the columns adds an architectural touch that mimics that on the outdoor columns, and helps further delineate the space.
