An elegant, timeless kitchen and a great example of how to maximize a small space. The feature piece in this compact kitchen is a custom glass cabinet with a valence furniture toe kick. This provided a convent place for the microwave and allowed us to open things up around the range. Reducing a dividing wall and pushing the peninsula into the living room gives the kitchen a more spacious feel. The back of the peninsula was built in one custom piece to accommodate a step down right below the dishwasher and sink. The result is a seamless transition from kitchen to living space. Deep drawers, pullout cabinets and hidden tray dividers maximize storage.
