As the remodel began, everything but the floor was removed. That included a washer and dryer that had been behind bi-fold doors. Peggy used the former laundry space for custom cabinets that house the refrigerator and double ovens. The sink was kept in front of the window, and a cooktop was installed on the counter to the left.
The clock above the sink is an example of Peggy’s ingenuity. She framed the face of an old clock, creating a unique piece of art. When redecorating follow Peggy’s lead and consider shopping your house and using items in an unexpected way.
To keep the room open and create a cottagey look Peggy decided not to have wall-to-wall upper cabinets installed. Instead, only three enclosed cupboards hang on the walls. An open shelf to the left of the cooktop keeps cookbooks within reach, and a decorative glassfront cabinet holds special serving pieces.
