This very small kitchen (120 Sq.Ft.) was renovated for a couple that appreciates art of all kinds. She is an accomplished quilter that has numerous prestigious awards, and really wanted to find a home for one of her prized quilts.
At only 7'-7" wide and complicated by a sloped ceiling for a third of the room, it was a formidable challenge that was also exasperated by a stair intrusion that could not be moved.
The solution was to remove a dividing wall and use the cabinets as the guard rail for the stairs. A very tricky door, to block the stairs from grandkids, was beautifully integrated into the cabinets. The removed wall also permitted an unusual ‘wrap around’ for the uppers over the sink. This run of uppers increased the space to an effective seven feet and provided lineal continuity of eight feet.
The newly exposed exterior wall became an ideal spot for the featured quilt.
The cabinet finish is a subtle off white horizontal grained wood and is contrasted by the light taupe floor, and darker taupe glass wall tiles.
