Removing a wall between the two rooms caused a loss of some storage space. To rectify this the couple’s carpenter (from Bokor Renovation) built a floor-to-ceiling pantry.
BEFORE: The kitchen was small and cramped and separated from the dining room.
AFTER: The family took down a wall between the kitchen and dining room to create a more open layout. “It really changed our lives in many ways,” says Mikaela. “The kids are nearby while I’m cooking dinner. It allows us all to be together.”
