Anne’s kitchen could easily be used as a show kitchen. Her white shaker cabinets are in high demand right now. The natural quartzite counter tops add an organic feel to the space and are bound to be the next big thing in kitchens. They have all the character of marble but the strength of engineered quartz. The textured glass backslash adds a bit of bling while the bubble glass pendants are a nice rustic touch. Each element is beautiful on its own and they work together to perfectly complement one another.
Anne’s original kitchen was tight and closed off from the rest of her home. Merrick removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room to double the size of her kitchen. A large cased opening was added to the living room to open the gap even further while still defining the spaces.
The loss of the formal dining room left Anne and her family with a need for one more space to gather, so a small mud room and music room were added just off the garage. It’s a nice retreat from the rest of the home and the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of tea and listen to some music.
