Re-Designing the Kitchen Office

Ok, almost ready to show you the final kitchen plan!
But before that let's look at the last section of the kitchen - the office.

Here is what the office looks now...

And here are my inspirations ...

 I like the white of course and the smaller drawers as well as having the main 'office part' in the middle.
This is similar to the first photo but take note that the cabinet goes all the way up the ceiling 
which I like too.


I like this because I want a display shelf similar to this for the middle cabinet.


This one shows the over-all feel I want for that area.
And here are the design rendering by Heather Lapham from E.A. Knight Construction.
This first design looks ok, however, we have a 27" MAC and I think the space above it might be too close to the monitor. Also I wanted the table counter height. That way, I could watch a movie or video while cooking and also supervise my son as he does his online therapies.

I also wanted a cabinet on the right for the printer instead of drawers.
After some tweaking, here is what  the final cabinet/area will look like...

The shelves in the middle will be all glass and lit up from above.
Notice too all the drawers and the printer cabinet on the right.

I know I'm a bit O-C on every little detail and Heather thankfully, is very patient with me and my continuous changes and requests.
I just want to make sure I do it right for us.
We're almost done with the design process!

  9. Hi,
    Modern Kitchen Designs

    Good concept with good information. Sometime people are remodeling their home. Its really appear good and attractive. Its also necessary for us to remodeling the house.

  10. Very cool redesign! Never thought about how handy it would be to have a set up like that in our kitchen. It looks really lovely. We have been looking at some single wall ovens for our kitchen but I think after that I will think about fitting in a little office space


Thank you for reading my blog! Hope you can stop by again sometime! Have a Wonderful Day!!
