Ranch House Kitchen

The kitchen of this late-1950s ranch home in St. Louis County, MO was separated from the dining and living areas by two walls. To gain more storage and create a sense of openness, two banks of custom cabinetry replace the walls. The installation of multiple skylights floods the space with light, and a new wall along the basement stairs has glass block inserts to move light into the dining room. The remodel respects the mid-20th century lines of the home while giving it 21st century freshness.
