Open-Plan Townhouse Kitchen
How do you make an older townhome more modern? The key is creating openness. Kitchens that merge effortlessly with dining rooms create large, open, sun-filled family spaces. Add some upgraded lighting and modern amenities — like the pantry/mudroom, laundry area and first-floor powder room shown here — and older, urban townhomes become modern and efficient without losing their charm. Tasteful, high quality, regionally sourced maple cabinets, flooring materials and counters mean renovations like these will last for decades. And tasteful color combinations trump faddy trends for lasting style.
