Stylish and efficient describes this small kitchen that makes a big impression. With well-planned storage there is plenty of room for the homeowner to have everything they need close at hand.
Beach-themed, the cabinetry is made of Hickory that has a strong grain and finished with Anchor Dark Gray Stain to look like dark driftwood. The theme is continued with "Ocean Mist" quartz countertop from Caesarstone, and "Sail Away Blue" Benjamin Moore Paint on the walls.
George not only designed this kitchen, he also put on his toolbelt and built it. He keeps his Unrestricted Builders License current, and takes on the occasional installation to keep his skills sharp.
This space was originally two tiny rooms with a wall where the peninsula is now seen. There was a standard exterior door coming in to a small room with a table and chairs. Removing that wall, installing a glass sliding door and the banquette created a comfortable living space with better views of the nearby water from both the seating area and the kitchen. The red oak flooring with satin finish is original to the home.
Open shelving is on trend, but George took it up a notch with a matching cabinetry panel and crown moulding to make a focal point with these floating shelves for display items.
The small penisula provides both working space when needed and seating for two people to visit with the cook, or enjoy a casual meal.
Large drawers next to the stove on the right-hand side keep pots and pans at hand, and the upper cabinets have aluminum frame doors that open upward for easy access.
Banquette seating for more people is made with matching cabinetry and paneling. It also includes storage drawers for items that are used less often. The smaller size hardware pulls are unnoticable when in use as seating.
This smart renovation makes everyday meal preparation easy, and the homeowner is now ready for relaxed entertaining.
