The Case for the Midcentury Modern Kitchen Layout

The kitchen can be among the most challenging projects when remodeling a midcentury home. The large, open kitchens we often dream of can far exceed the floor plan of the original space. Expanding the layout can be expensive, as space will have to be carved from adjoining rooms or an addition will need to be placed on the home.

 

Yet the midcentury modern era taught us that a compact kitchen needn’t skimp on function or beauty. When remodeling a midcentury modern kitchen, consider updating the finishes, appliances and storage while keeping the efficient layout.
