You’ve heard the old chestnut, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” When working with a space that has awkward or unusual lines, designers often have to make the best of the situation — and truly talented pros turn the oddity into a design feature that looks absolutely intentional. When designing the kitchen for a home with corners dramatically out of square, Kerr Construction embraced that architectural quirk and emphasized it with the design of the kitchen island. “The unusual shape of the island matches the corners on that side of the home, and the recessed ceiling above the counter,” they say.
