Shades of Gray in Scarsdale
The kitchen in this townhouse started as those in many smaller homes do — as a galley kitchen, but by opening up a wall the team was able to transform it into a large, functional, and stylish kitchen. The original kitchen, which was nearly 20 years old, had white cabinets that were falling apart, a small U-shaped island, and a wall between the kitchen and dining area. The homeowners wanted a large island with plenty of seating. A steel beam was needed once the wall was taken down and it was wrapped with oak and stained to match the countertops. One thing, the team didn’t need to change, was all of the natural light thanks to the many windows and skylights. Interior Designer, Strauss House Designs.
