OAKLAND kitchen-dining room SWAP

In this inspired renovation, the large dining room and the smaller kitchen were swapped to provide the open concept feel and more casual dining experience this young family was looking for. The new larger kitchen opens up to the living room at one end and features beautiful french doors to the backyard at the other so small children are always within view. The smaller dining space provides a more casual dining experience without sacrificing the functionality of a formal dining room for larger family gatherings.
