Heejoo’s Northeast Seattle home suffered a lot of modifications and the major part of them was related to the kitchen. This particular space was expanded and renovated in order to get a new and modern kitchen, more bright and attractive for the whole family. Thus a partial second story was added so that a new formal entry and a L-shaped open floor plan were created for this kitchen.200 square feet were added to the existing floor plan, IKEA boxes were used for cabinets with high gloss IKEA cabinet doors around the perimeter and semi-handmade custom walnut doors on the island. Cabinet halogen lighting was used for perimeter cabinets while IKEA door dampers were used for self closing. White dominates the whole space, only the island lights add a little bit of fresh green accents.
