In spite of the time Beverly and Betsy spent planning out where things would go and how areas would be used, as we were doing the finishing touches, Betsy found that sitting just past where the nearest plant sits on the narrow low counter, right between the two windows on that wall gave her great joy. No way to explain it. Joy comes where joy comes. If you visit most likely that is where Betsy will sit while you have the tea or coffee she serves.
Beyond the counter you see the bi fold doors behind which are the laundry closet. You can also see the ceiling height transition. That marks the end of the kitchen and the beginning of the dining area.
Oddly enough what is most important in this picture is what is not there. as you step into the kitchen from the front hall this pot rack is on your right. Originally there were to be two pot racks and the painted wall that the pots cast their shadow on was to be an antiqued sheet of brass. The thing with renovation is that no matter what your budget is and this kitchen was the best funded kitchen remodel of my career, construction will eventually make the client ask me a version of Betsy's question when going over the cost of the metal panel. "Do I have to have it?" No, you never have to have anything you don't want. Even though it becomes our project it always remains your home.
