This kitchen employs simplicity and clean lines to achieve a sleek and classic style. Tubular cabinet and appliance hardware combined with a rectangular stained glass backsplash enforce strong horizontal elements in the design. One of the major challenges was the size of the space. Informal seating, plenty of storage and space for a TV had to be incorporated. To maximize space, a green house window bumps out in front of the sink area, and a built in table accommodates convenient seating. A sense of enlarged space was created at both entrances. First, a glass mullion pocket door leads to the hallway, creating a division of space while maintaining the appearance of openness. Second, a pass-through was created between the kitchen and dining room, further opening the space. Extra seating on the back side of the pass-through is an added bonus. The TV is placed in the optimal position for viewing while seated at the table or the pass-through. Small cabinets with lift doors are positioned above the built-in refrigerator and the hood, maximizing cabinet space.
