1950's Galley Kitchen Transformed

San Diego / ​KITCHEN


The 1950’s Galley kitchen had separate private areas for the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The homeowners wanted an open concept living space.


The goal was to transform the home into a more modern open concept living space. By removing the wall between the original galley style kitchen and dining room, and widening the opening between the dining room and living room the house has better flow, and allows Mom to keep an eye on the kids from the kitchen. This family worked with K-Co designers on layout, finishes and color palettes to create a space that is family friendly and ready for entertaining.
