Bold Color & Strategic Storage

The homeowners downsized from a five bedroom house to a single bedroom in-law suite in a bi-level two-family house shared with their daughter and her family. The kitchen design started with the question: how small can this kitchen be while still providing functionality for a family of two, all combined with a fun, bold style?

The homeowners are committed to sustainability, and already in their everyday habits have made small changes to be more mindful of practices such as composting, using reusable cloths, and more. They wanted the kitchen project to be as sustainable as possible.

After taking a detailed inventory of the homeowners’ kitchen use and habits, the compact layout was designed to provide generous counter space, comfortable walking clearances, and abundant storage. The mantra became “If it doesn’t fit in this kitchen, we don’t need it.”

The cabinets are optimized for functionality with plenty of storage from Showplace features like:

  • Roll-Out Trays
  • Two-Tier Cutlery Divider Drawer
  • Waste Basket Base Cabinet
  • Deep Drawers for Pot and Pan Storage

This kitchen won first place in the Best Small Kitchen Design category of our 2020 Design Contest.
