What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
Cool, calm, and sophisticated, this ultra-functional kitchen is enveloped in natural light. For this kitchen, our focus was placed on usability, accessibility, countertop space, and a clean design that does not invade the space. This transitional kitchen features white shaker style doors with rustic glazed finish island.
In order to utilize every inch of the space available we installed custom appliances’ garage, lazy Susan, magic corner, and oversized pullout pantries, for which we used heavy-duty mechanisms to support the weight of the doors. All these additions allowed us to provide a much-needed countertop space to our client. Last but not least, the kitchen features window valence with LED light, gas stove, fully integrated fridge and under counter LED light.
