The living room opens to the completely renovated kitchen. Small windows were eliminated, and 6' sliders were added, leading out to an expansive deck that ran the length of the entire home. The vinyl flooring was replaced with wood, matching the size, color, and direction of the living room floor to maintain continuity. White cabinetry and appliances kept the space clean and open. The butcher block formica maintained the personality of a Cape. A pine dining table with gateleg leaves on both sides was placed under a window (out of frame). It served the couple for daily meals, yet opened to accommodate 8 guests.
