From Real Simple's Simply Stated blog, check out this kitchen renovation by interior designers Elizabeth Meyerson and Frances Herrera. It starts with a typical closed and cramped New York City apartment kitchen.
Before, it was a tiny pass-through kitchen crammed into a corner. After, it's opened to the rest of the apartment, letting space flow from one room to the next.
Lots of people prefer to retain a separate kitchen, though many others like an open layout. What's your take on this renovation's move from closed to open? See more of Meyerson's work at Gambi Design and Herrera's work at Interiors by Francesca.
