Classic Contemporary Kitchen by Sandra Tierney

NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Small Kitchen - Third Place.

Co-Designer: Doreen Owens, CKD, CBD, CID

This sophisticated kitchen is the visual outcome of gleaming glass, a steel penny round backsplash and the occasional orange punctuation of color against a mellow creamy grey backdrop. Customized storage and banquette, and motorized window shades add a layer of sophisticated functionality to complete a well-composed design.

The homeowners had big dreams for the small space and the final design guaranteed the dream became reality. The fridge was tucked away, designed to look like cabinetry doors and the rest of the space was opened up, while at the same time, storage space was increased with smart use of cabinetry and a new pot rack. Counters and prep areas were also maximized and usage of corner mirrors helped to give the visual illusion of a larger space. For a high-tech twist, motorized window shades were installed allowing the owners to close off the outside world with the push of a button - perhaps to give them the opportunity to dream of sophisticated design ideas for other areas of the house.
