The Before and After of This Cottage Kitchen Is Stunning

Before an extensive renovation, this kitchen was dated and closed off. But it now has new life and a wonderful floor plan thanks to one creative designer.

When the Holt family was renovating their mid-century ranch-style home, the kitchen was a top priority in the design. With three young daughters and a husband who loves to cook, Jordan Holt knew the space needed to be both an enjoyable place for the family to spend time together and durable enough to hold up to the wear and tear of the five of them. Fortunately, interior designer Caitie Morgan understood their needs and got to work creating the kitchen of their dreams.

The Holts’ home renovation was extensive and included rearranging the floor plan and removing the wall that separated the kitchen and living room to create a more open area. Now, the couple has the freedom to move between both spaces while still being able to watch their children and chat with each other.
