This client dreamed of a large eat in island that her family could gather around. After several attempts by contractors to try to make this work (and fail)- Monika Ross Design came up with a creative solution to gain the space needed to allow for a massive island. We moved the wall between the kitchen and living room slightly- only stealing 14" from the living room. Buried necessary beam inside the upper cabinets so it is completely unseen in the new design. The result = a kitchen of their dreams that will suit family needs for years to come. And no one misses that bit in the living room. Persistence and creativity pays off!
