John & Alice love to bake and cook. However, their existing kitchen was small, cramped, outdated, and wasn't the most functional for a couple that loved to cook meals at home. The limitations of the existing layout meant that John & Alice had to walk around their counter and posts to get to their stove. These posts in the middle of the kitchen were breaking up the choppy flow of the kitchen. In addition, limited counter space made cooking and cleaning difficult. Often times two people couldn't cook at once because they kept bumping into each other.
Lack of sufficient storage also proved to be a problem for John & Alice. They ran out of areas to store food, mugs, containers, jars, and boxed goods. As a result, John & Alice wanted a new kitchen that would accommodate their love of cooking and hosting parties for friends and family.
