Sleek and Sophisticated

With minimal changes to the footprint, the homeowner/designer created a sleek, sophisticated kitchen that capitalizes on the existing space and soaring ceiling. Fir cabinets are tall and roomy; refrigerator and freezer drawers to the right of the sink conserve floor space.

The Details
Countertops: Soapstone countertops are impervious to damage; the matching backsplash is embellished with reproduction deco tiles.

Space-savers: Mounting the faucet on the wall keeps the space behind the sink clean and simple. A slim vertical cabinet to the right of the freezer drawer stores cookie sheets and pizza stones upright.

Cabinets: Side panels on the upper cabinets are fitted with glass so light coming through the window fills the cabinets. Dark-stained crown molding matches trim in the rest of the home.
