Honourable Mention – Small Kitchens, NKBA Interior Design Awards 2009
At only 8 ½ feet wide, this kitchen could only be executed as a galley design. The selection and placement of equipment was the key to success for this design. A fully integrated fridge and dishwasher were fitted behind cabinetry. The tall components of the kitchen were clustered at the same end as the existing pantry closet. By concentrating all of the tall items at the far end of the room, it allowed for more counter space near the entry and window. Minimal disruption to the cabinet fronts and a lack of handles combine for a look of ‘pure’ design. Truffle brown pine cabinetry contrasts with beautiful white Carrara marble counters and backsplash. A functional and elegant ‘On Wall’ system was used in combination without uppers above the sink area. The wall was intended to exhibit client’s photos.
