After co-owning a duplex with my sister for many years, we felt it was time to breathe new life into each of our kitchens as they were cramped, outdated, and separated from the rest of the living areas. We hired David Heide Design Studio to help us create an open floor plan while maintaining the design integrity of the house. In the end, we decided to remove the walls between the kitchens and dining rooms. We’re glad we did! Both kitchens are a highlight and feel just right—we’ve received comments that the floor plan feels original. My kitchen, on the first floor, is more contemporary and features blue subway tile, gray soapstone countertops, and a combination of blue and white cabinetry.
