Challenge Maximize this compact space to accommodate kitchen storage and adequate working counter area—bringing it into the 21st century while retaining its craftsman feel.
Solution Replace the originals with framed, inset cabinets featuring shaker-style doors. Upgrade the space with paneled dishwasher drawers, a bridge faucet, instant hot water, a microwave cabinet, and a small area for dry food storage.
Results This redesigned room offers fluid movement for kitchen activity with a wealth of storage and counter space at the cook’s fingertips—all in a clean, up-scale craftsman presentation.
The lightly stained cherry-wood cabinets reflect the home’s craftsman roots and add just the right contrast to the beautiful fir floor. The custom subway tile backsplash, with its integrated liner, pulls the entire space together.
