With less than 130 available square feet, the tight budget limited the new design to keeping all plumbing, electrical, and appliances to their original locations without affecting the existing hardwood flooring.
Through proper space planning, maximum storage was achieved, thus allowing the client to customize two of the upper cabinets for display storage with reeded glass door fronts. A dual-purpose wine rack located within easy reach of the stove also houses vinegars and oils for meal preparation.
Through the clever use of horizontal and vertical design elements, this modest kitchen now possesses a much grander feel. The parallel lines of the cabinetry create visual space by drawing the eye around the room, while continuing the cabinets and crown to the ceiling added visual weight. All previously un-utilized space now contains the necessities for versatile meal preparations.
