In and Out of Sight
New York-based designer Toni Sabatino faced the challenge of creating an entertaining kitchen space for a family with children.
Before the renovation, the space was closed into separate rooms. By tearing down the walls, the space became more accommodating for entertainment and for watching the children.
“We basically applied the kitchen design rules to the whole space,” she said, explaining that kitchen cabinetry was used for the entertainment set because of the deep drawers and rollout shelves.
As the family likes to decorate for different holidays, the primarily neutral palette allows for flexibility.
Along with bookshelves on one side and a wine rack on the other, the island offers a second sink, a dishwasher, pullout recycle and drawers for takeout menus and kid’s snacks.
