In this traditional home, we removed the front entry closet and hallway to increase the family room. We removed the wall between the kitchen and dining room to introduce a peninsula with counter height seating. We added a walk-in pantry leading to the back hall and updated the existing small powder room. A large entertainment unit was also included in the family room with space for a large flat screen television and electric fireplace. The entire first floor was finished with a floating laminate floor resistant to stain and scratches.
