When New York architect Ben Herzog needed to redo his kitchen, he turned to himself. Who knows the space better, right?
Ben shares his story about this townhouse kitchen makeover and what he loves about the design – and what he wishes he'd done differently.
We wanted a nice, roomy kitchen where people could hang out while we cooked. We also wanted a deck off of the kitchen, both to increase our living space and to let in light.
Designing and installing the range hood was more convoluted and difficult than I anticipated. In retrospect, I wouldn't have bothered with the time or expense, since I rarely run it.
The columns! They're beautiful, but working around them made the space difficult to plan.
If I had it to do over, I would have opened the rear masonry wall to let more light in. I didn’t want to spend the money then but now I think I would.
We put a cubby in a 6"-wide space next to the sink for paper towels and cutting boards. It’s been really useful.
