Curry Kitchen / Living Room
Kirk and Mandy Curry were unique clients, in that they both have normal jobs but have a fantastic side business called Healthy Kids Inc., which they operate out of their home.
There they film cooking shows and even bring in guest chefs that teach families how to prepare and cook delicious, quick and, most important, healthy meals for their children. They post these videos to their YouTube channel for all who subscribe to view.
With the success of their business, the need to remodel their space became apparent.
After a consultation with YDI and establishment of a budget, it was determined that the only way to grow their current kitchen was to expand into the existing formal dining room that was almost never used.
The main focus of the new space was to create an island that Mandy could easily cook and teach from and her husband, Kirk, could film her without obstructions.
The new island includes a brand-new cook top, convenient spice rack pullouts, and a space for pots and pans she could quickly grab while filming. One of the unique additions to the new space is a large chalkboard that not only serves as a tool for their filming, but also doubles as a piece of art the whole family could use. Easy meal planning, drawings from the kids and sweet messages to one another quickly became a part of their day when they started using their new design.
We featured this kitchen in one of our WV Design Team articles for the Charleston Gazette-Mail. To read the full article: The death of the formal dining room
