Incredible Makeover | A Big Family Feast

cross

As empty nesters living in an 800-square-foot apartment, Mr. and Mrs. Tang eagerly look forward to meeting their children and grandchildren on holidays. Mrs. Tang, aided by her husband, would prepare a sumptuous home cooked dinner for the big family. Being together was wonderful, but the dining room and kitchen, having been in use for nearly two decades, struggled to meet the needs of their family gatherings, and problems started to emerge.


Challenges and needs

(1) The old kitchen cabinets were too high and deep, making them unsafe and inconvenient for the aging couple; (2) the worktop was too small and taken up by dishes that had to be moved away when cooking; (3) the dining table could not accommodate the big family and some of them could not sit down for dinner; (4) a designated storage for the grandchildren’s toys and other items was needed to free up space in the living room

It is just too tiring to move away a huge pile of utensils before getting what you need from a corner cabinet. A sturdy and durable corner base cabinet pull-out fitting can be turned easily and keep everything within reach.

A brand-new smart kitchen

A passionate home cook, Mrs. Tang rules the kitchen. Therefore, the designer designed the space according to her habits and needs, such as choosing bigger cabinets at easily reachable height, and shelf inserts that maximize space. The kitchen rails at eye level keeps the tools handy and free up the worktop, while a colander and chopping board that fit the sink perfectly can create a smooth and efficient flow line.

Recognising the needs of their parents, the children wanted extra lighting in the cabinets and above the worktop. With various kitchen accessories and organisers that put every corner into use, a semi-open kitchen can become a professional stage for the chef!

A hospitable home

While there are a dozen people on festive occasions, the dining room is only used by the couple, their youngest daughter, son-in-law and grandchild for dinner on the other days. To make sure that the space is flexible enough for their needs, there are two dining tables: one extendable table for two to six people, and a gateleg table for big family gatherings. The drawings and pictures on the ledges also give the space a warm and inviting touch.

The kid zone

As the couple help take care of their youngest grandchild, the little one’s books and toys took over the whole living room. The new design now includes a learning and play zone for the kid with storage solutions at the right height, so that the child can learn to stay organised too.
