Adding additional storage up top is a fantastic idea, if you're able to reach, that is. Katie Ridder installed a rolling ladder (just such as the library!) in this superb kitchen to reach ceiling-height cupboards.
This miniature Nyc kitchen has a place for everything, says designer Stephanie Stokes. "After design a great number of kitchens for other people, I understood exactly what I desired and what I desired," she says. An electric cooktop that doubles as countertop and simple cabinetry help supply the chimera of grandeur, a mirrored backsplash.
This homeowner, a top Realtor in the area, needed a unique little space to show off to her customers. That's only what she got with all the dark shoji-style cupboards and custom round butcher block table on casters. Floating shelves, which help to open up the tiny kitchen flank the cooking range.
Working with only 72 square feet, Austin designer Kim Lewis selected for in-plain-sight storage. The copper-conduit shelving has hooks for hanging mugs, keeping the clutter that is counter -free. With no dishwasher, a farmhouse sink can accommodate grimy pots and pans.
Although his customers requested a bank of open shelving, designer Grant K. Gibson added a single ledge to their galley kitchen. "One ledge is easy and dynamic," he says. "You must be able to hide mess, which way, you'll be able to rotate your groups!"
The wall between this miniature kitchen and an adjacent living space was removed to make room for more storage. Visual separation between the rooms was sustained having an island-breakfast bar. Placing the sink in the corner of the room made for more food prep space, while polished and brushed stainless tile forms a standout backsplash.
In the kitchen of a Manhattan apartment by Philip Gorrivan, iridescent mosaic tiles as well as a ceiling lacquered in Benjamin Moore's Oceanic Teal pick a colour in the wallpaper in the hallway up. The Thonet barstools are by York Street Studio.
In a 295-square foot Brooklyn studio apartment the kitchen corner, done in white and green to blend in, gets a helping with grosgrain ribbon trim and also a painted plaid backsplash of charm.
"The kitchen is an excellent size, but small by Dallas standards," Craig Schumacher says of the Texas kitchen he shares with partner Philip Kirk. They avoided an extensive remodel by painting cupboards Benjamin Moore Brilliant White and installing cheap white and black tile on counters and backsplashes. An extensive ironstone set overflows from shelves to walls.
In Mark Egerstrom's 1,200-square foot West Hollywood home, the wood floors of the kitchen extend out to a shower doors, creating adjoining deck through glass the illusion of a much larger . The walnut cabinetry was designed by Egerstrom: "It's my take on old farmhouse kitchens, updated to the 21st century."
This hardworking little kitchen features two space-smart pullout hidden stepladder storage for upper cupboards and pantry units. While a rich blue beadboard backsplash delivers a shot of colour, the use of butternut wood, copper, hickory, and antiqued bronze give the room warmth.
