This 1972-built home is in Indianapolis’ Pickwick Commons neighborhood. The popular ’70s split-level design didn’t give the family the space they craved for spending time together and hosting friends and family. They wanted to create a larger kitchen that opened into a brand-new great room which would offer plenty of room for family activities.
- The exterior wall was removed and columns added to provide structural support and architectural interest between the kitchen and the new great room.
- The kitchen was expanded into what was the dining room, giving the homeowners more room for maneuvering and a lot more storage.
- An impressive granite backsplash makes quite a statement over the cooktop and continues to the counters.
- New maple cabinetry with loads of pull-out shelves and organizers, plus a larger island, provide additional storage and organization.
