The first thing we did was to partially open up the wall and allow a more natural flow between the kitchen and the living room. This way the kitchen no longer feels closed and claustrophobic but rather inviting and pleasant to cook in. We also added a sitting area, ideal for quick breakfasts and dinners, as well as night caps. The white cabinets and white-brick backsplash competent each other perfectly while also contrasting the more natural tone of the flooring. All this contributed to making the cooking space in this condo feel larger, more spacious, and far brighter for an enhanced meal prep experience.
