The left hand, top and bottom pictures show the original kitchen in a 2D floor plan and photo. The right hand, top and bottom pictures show the renovated kitchen. Notice that the beam in the ceiling is in the same place but the original wall of cabinets and closet on the right side have been removed. This floor plan design allowed the owner to visualize the changes and confidently begin the renovation to create a larger kitchen with improved traffic flow.
Two large windows, a fireplace, radiator and two doorways in this long narrow room made furniture placement a challenge for this client. The floor plan revealed that larger furnishings eliminated the cluttered appearance and maximized seating for guests.
Mom needed portable filing for volunteer projects which traditional file drawers didn’t accommodate. Dad needed a landing zone for his briefcase and laptop and they were open to replacing a futon most often occupied by the beloved family dog. We selected furniture to support their needs and created two versions of this floor plan. Their decision was easy when they realized the furniture would easily fit and money would be well spent!
We created a floor plan to explore furniture placement and traffic flow throughout our client’s new master bedroom and suggested placement of the gas fired fireplace and sliding glass doors. Our client requested the changes and the architect adjusted the plans for the new addition.
