When Sunset Editor Irene Edwards decided to remodel her Victorian home, the goal was to balance style and functionality. Since her husband cooks for a living, it is the most used space in Edwards’ house. But the original layout seemed cramped, with a low ceiling and a breakfast room separated by French doors. The architect removed these doors and reconfigured the kitchen into three areas: a cooking area with sink preparation, a corner for everyday meals and a larger sink area for cleaning. The removal of the low ceiling revealed almost three feet more in height, an enhanced feature by the addition of a barred ceiling finish, pendant lights and a library-style staircase.
